SERIES: Giants lead Dodgers 2-1 in the best-of-5 NLDS after San Francisco won a Game 3 for the ages Monday night.. San Francisco won this year’s regular-season matchups 10-9.

The Giants and Dodgers head to Chavez Ravine Tuesday night in an elimination Game 4 of their National League Divisional Series after San Francisco’s epic 1-0 victory in Game 3 on Monday night. Evan Longoria broke a 1-for-35 skid with a home run off Max Scherzer in the fifth inning for the game’s only run.

San Francisco shut out the vaunted Dodgers’ offense for the second time in the series as starter Alex Wood (4 2/3 innings, two hits, four strikeouts) combined with Tyler Rogers, Jake McGee and rookie closer Camilo Doval on a five-hit shutout. Doval got the save with two scoreless innings, in the process becoming the only rookie to have a save of at least two innings and not allow a baserunner since saves became an official stat in 1969.

The Giants got help from outstanding defense from shortstop Brandon Crawford, whose leaping grab of a Mookie Betts liner ended the seventh inning and robbed the Dodgers of a game-tying run, and center fielder Steven Duggar, who ran down Chris Taylor’s potential game-tying RBI double in the sixth. The Giants also got a bit of a break from Mother Nature to end the game when heavy winds in L.A. kept pinch hitter Gavin Lux’s 106.9 mph drive off Doval in the ballpark, enabling Duggar to catch it at the warning track to end the game.

Game 4 will feature Giants right-hander Anthony DeSclafani taking the mound for his first ever postseason appearance. The 31-year-old has started six times against the Dodgers and is 0-3 with a 7.33 ERA and six home runs allowed. However, DeSclafani’s last start against L.A. produced six scoreless innings in an eventual 3-2 Giants’ win on Sept. 3.

The Dodgers announced late Tuesday morning that they’ll go with ace right-hander Walker Buehler on three days rest for Game 4 Tuesday night. Buehler took the Game 1 loss last Friday, giving up three earned runs in 6 1/3 innings as Logan Webb and the Giants prevailed 4-0.
