The Giants are entering game four after their second shutout victory of the series. They notched a 4-0 win to open this NLDS, then recorded a 1-0 win Monday night. San Francisco ace Alex Wood lasted just 4.2 innings, but kept L.A off the board along with great outings from relievers Tyler Rogers, Jake McGee and Camilo Doval, Each helped keep the Dodgers' bats silent and 0-for7 with runners in scoring position. 

The veteran Evan Longoria provided all the offense in game three with a solo homer in the fifth inning. It's his only hit so far this postseason and just one of three for the Giants in the game. 

The Dodgers weren't able to build off whatever it was they had in game two where they scored nine runs. In game three, Albert Pujols led off the third and fifth inning with singles, but both times L.A. couldn't bring him around to score. The Dodgers biggest threat came in the seventh inning, when they put together back-to-back one-out singles, but pinch-hitter Austin Barnes struck out and Mookie Betts followed with a line-out to short. 

If the Dodgers' offense is looking for a cure-all, then the Giant's game four starter maybe just who they need. Gabe Kapler has tagged Anthony DeSclafani to start tonight. Los Angeles did have one great outing against him in May where they scored 10 runs. In total, DeSclafani went 0-3 against the Dodgers this season in six starts with a 7.22 ERA, his highest against any team this season. 

The Dodgers will start Walker Buehler in this one. Buehler stared the series opener and took the loss allowing three runs over six innings of work.
