LOS ANGELES (AP) - Evan Longoria homered off Max Scherzer in the fifth inning and the San Francisco Giants edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 on a blustery night to take a 2-1 lead in their NL Division Series.
It was the Giants’ second shutout in the best-of-five playoff after winning the opener 4-0. Game 4 is Tuesday at Dodger Stadium with Game 5 in San Francisco on Thursday, if necessary.
The Dodgers routed the Giants 9-2 to win Game 2, but mustered just five hits back at home. Longoria broke out of an 0-for-23 slump in a big way with his leadoff shot to left-center for his first postseason homer since 2013 with Tampa Bay.
