San Francisco leads 2-1 with the NL Division series. Evan Longoria hits a homerun.
AngelIn the fifth game, Evan Longoria defeated Max Scherzer. Los Angeles Dodgers were defeated by the San Francisco Giants by 1-0 on a windy Monday night. They now lead their divisional series 2-1.
The fourth and fifth games will be played at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday. On Thursday, the fifth game will take place in San Francisco.
After winning the first game, 4-0, this is the Giants’ second exit from a five-game series of three-win games.
After only scoring twice in his last 40 attempts, Longoria’s 23-0 streak has ended. This is Longoria’s first home run in the postseason since the 2013 American League Divisional Series against Tampa Bay. Scherzer was able to retire his six remaining batsmen.
The Dodgers defeated Giants 9-2 in game two of the series. But, they managed just five hits at home. Trea Turner, the NL batting champ, and Mookie Betts were leading 4-0, while Corey Seager was leading 4-0.
Buster Posey’s single and Chris Bryant’s double were the Giants’ other hits. His 15 previous batsmen also retired, including in 9th, when the Dodgers were very close to Kenley Jansen.
Alex Wood, a San Francisco pitcher, allowed two hits against his former team in just 4 1/3 innings. The left-hander walked two and scored four runs. Tyler Rogers won by a single game and two-thirds advantage. Dominica Camilo Doval signed the perfect rescues.
