Photos: San Francisco Giants pitching and defense key to 1-0 win over Los Angeles Dodgers in NLDS Game 3

Brandon Crawford jumped 100 mph off the bat of Muki Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and it saved the San Francisco Giants in the third game of the National League’s divisional series.

Crawford’s glove, Longoria bat and nine pitching innings led by rookie Alex Wood brought the Giants away victory over Dodgers and ace Max Scherzer.

On Monday night at Dodger Stadium, the Giants beat the wind and the Dodgers to a 1-0 win at Evan Longoria’s solo home early, pushing them to the brink of returning to the NLCS.
