SAN DIEGO (AP) Their early 3-0 lead long gone http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-yunel-escobar-jersey , the San Francisco Giants got some big plays late to had the free-falling San Diego Padres their sixth straight loss.Gorkys Hernandez hit a go-ahead home run leading off the 12th inning, Will Smith struck out the last four San Diego batters and Austin Slater had a big play at first base as the Giants beat San Diego 5-3 Monday night.”Great win,” manager Bruce Bochy said. ”We had the lead and give them cedit, they found a way to come back. But we hung in there with some gutty efforts there by everybody. We’ve had some tough losses, so it’s good to win one like this on the road. Hard-fought by all those guys out there.”The Padres had runners on first and third with one out in the 11th and failed to score. Instead, they dropped to 2-8 since the All-Star break and lost for the 13th time in 15 games. San Diego is 5-19 in July.With runners on first and third in the bottom of the 11th, San Diego’s Austin Hedges bunted for the second out. Pitcher Sam Dyson fielded it and made a low throw to Slater, who picked it out of the dirt. Freddy Galvis advanced to second, but Christian Villanueva wasn’t able to score from third.”He threw it low and Slater picked us up,” Bochy said.Will Smith (1-1) came on and struck out Carlos Asuaje. He then struck out the side in the 12th.”That’s big. The winning run’s on third,” Smith said. ”You definitely don’t want to cash in your buddy’s runs, that’s for sure. You’ve got to bear down and make some good pitches there.”Hernandez homered to left on a 1-2 pitch from Matt Strahm (2-3), his 13th. The Giants got another run on Buster Posey’s fielder’s choice blooper.Watching the ball go out was ”awesome, because we had the lead,” Smith said. ”Twelfth inning like that, a game we really need to win, that was a big momentum swing. The dugout was loud, pumped up. He crushed it Martin Maldonado Jersey , so it was a big jolt for us.”The Giants had a scoring chance in the 10th, when Andrew McCutchen was hit by a pitch from Kirby Yates with two outs. He took third when Buster Posey’s comebacker caromed off Yates’ glove and the pitcher threw it away at first for an error. However, Yates got out of the jam when Evan Longoria popped up to second base.Asked if Hedges bunted on his own, manager Andy Green said: ”That situation right there I’ve got confidence in him swinging the bat and I’ve got confidence in him laying the bunt down. So he’s got the ability to do both, and that one just didn’t work out for us.”San Diego tied it with one out in the eighth when rookie Christian Villanueva doubled in Eric Hosmer, who singled with one out.The Giants took an early lead on Chase d’Arnaud’s three-run home run after rookie lefty Eric Lauer allowed singles to Brandon Crawford and Austin Slater opening the inning. It was the fifth for d’Arnaud, who played 22 games with San Diego last year.San Diego cut into the deficit on Hunter Renfroe’s leadoff homer in the fourth, his eighth, and Manuel Margot’s fly ball off the glove of left fielder Hernandez in the fifth. Margot was credited with a sacrifice fly and Hernandez with an error. It brought in Austin Hedges, who hit a leadoff double and advanced to third on a sacrifice.Derek Holland pitched into the sixth inning for the Giants, allowing two runs and four hits, with five strikeouts and two walks. He was lifted after walking Hosmer leading off the sixth.Lauer went five, allowing three runs and seven hits, with three strikeouts and two walks.FULL DAYJoe Panik had two at-bats for Triple-A Sacramento before flying to San Diego after being recalled by the Giants. He popped up as a pinch-hitter in the eighth.QUICK TRIPBochy arrived in San Diego at about 11 a.m. Monday after attending the Hall of Fame induction of former Padres closer Trevor Hoffman on Sunday. ”It was a hit and run,” Bochy said of going coast-to-coast twice in just more than 48 hours. He took a redeye Saturday night after the Giants’ game in San Francisco, arriving in Cooperstown, New York, at about 11:30 a.m. He stayed in Cooperstown Sunday night to attend a dinner with Hoffman’s family and friends. Bochy managed Hoffman for 12 years with the Padres. Bench coach Hensley Meulens managed the Giants to an 8-5 victory Sunday against Milwaukee.HOT CORNERPadres outfielder Wil Myers was taking grounders at third base before the game. Green said not to read too much of it. Still http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-j.-c.-ramirez-jersey , Myers, San Diego’s first baseman before Eric Hosmer was signed, could be a defensive upgrade over Villanueva.TRAINER’S ROOMPlaced RHP Johnny Cueto on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right elbow. Bochy said there’s a ”strong possibility” Cueto will need reconstructive surgery. INF Pablo Sandoval (strained right hamstring) also went on the DL.UP NEXTGiants: Rookie RHP Dereck Rodriguez (5-1, 2.75 ERA) is scheduled to start the matinee series finale. He didn’t factor in the decision in his start against San Diego on June 24, a 3-2 Giants win in which he held San Diego to one run and four hits in seven innings.Padres: LHP Clayton Richard (7-10, 5.05) is 0-2 with a 14.63 ERA in his two starts since the All-Star break. He didn’t factor in the decision in either of his starts against the Giants this year.— Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesThe National League Division Series slate is set.The Colorado Rockies will take on the Milwaukee Brewers in one matchup after a dramatic 2-1 win in 13 innings over the Chicago Cubs in the Wild Card Game.The reigning NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers will square off against the young Atlanta Braves in the other matchup, and one of those four teams will be playing in the World Series later this month.Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though. First, the NLDS.Ahead you'll find all the pertinent scheduling and TV info, as well as a quick preview of both matchups:Milwaukee Brewers vs. Colorado RockiesDavid DahlMatthew Stockman/Getty ImagesGame 1 at MIL: Thursday, October 4 (5:07 p.m. ET, FS1)Game 2 at MIL: Friday, October 5 (4:15 p.m. ET, FS1)Game 3 at COL: Sunday, October 7 (4:37 p.m. ET, MLB Network)Game 4 at COL: Monday, October 8 (TBD, FS1)Game 5 at MIL: Wednesday Darin Erstad Jersey , October 10 (TBD, FS1)The Brewers secured the best record in the National League and home-field advantage through the NLDS and NLCS with their Game 163 win over the Chicago Cubs, and now they're ready to square off against the upstart Rockies.Both teams finished the year strong, with the Brewers going 19-7 with a plus-67 run differential in September, and the Rockies not far behind at 19-9 with a plus-59 differential.The two teams met seven times during the regular season, with their most recent meeting coming in early August. The Brewers won five of seven, including taking three of four at Coors Field.The Brewers will open the series with a "bullpen day" before turning to Jhoulys Chacin on short rest in Game 2, and the bullpen will be the key to them making a deep postseason run.Jeremy Jeffress, Corey Knebel and Josh Hader form a dominant three-headed monster in the late innings, veterans Joakim Soria and Dan Jennings are both capable middle relievers and rookies Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff can provide multiple innings.They'll have their hands full shutting down a Rockies offense that has been firing on all cylinders of late. Nolan Arenado and David Dahl both finished the regular season on fire, Trevor Story had an MVP-type season and Charlie Blackmon remains as dangerous as any table-setter in the game.Meanwhile, young starters Kyle Freeland and German Marquez have enjoyed breakout seasons to help turn the rotation into a strength for the Rockies for the first time in years.The Rockies will need to score early to have a chance. The Brewers will need theirstarting pitching to provide something, or they risk running the relief corps ragged.Prediction:Brewers in 4Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta BravesHyun-Jin RyuJason O. Watson/Getty ImagesGame 1 at LAD: Thursday, October 4 (8:37 p.m. ET, MLB Network)Game 2 at LAD: Friday, October 5 (9:37 p.m. ET, FSI)Game 3 at ATL: Sunday, October 7 (8:07 p.m. ET http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-upton-jersey , FS1)Game 4 at ATL: Monday, October 8 (TBD, FS1)Game 5 at LAD: Wednesday, October 10 (TBD, FS1)The Dodgers have won six straight division titles and reached the NLCS in three of the past five seasons.The Braves are in the playoffs for the first time since 2013, and only Freddie Freeman and Julio Teheran remain from that roster.With the four-man rotation of Clayton Kershaw (6 GS, 3-0, 3.89 ERA), Walker Buehler (6 GS, 2-1, 1.62 ERA), Hyun-Jin Ryu (5 GS, 3-2, 1.50 ERA) and Rich Hill (5 GS, 5-0, 3.90 ERA) all pitching well over the final month of the season, the Dodgers are going to be tough to beat.For the first time during their recent run of playoff trips, it will be someone other than Kershaw on the mound in Game 1 of the NLDS Shohei Ohtani Jersey , as Ryu will get the start.Bill Plaschke of theLos Angeles Times wrote: "Ryu loves pitching in Dodger Stadium, witness his 1.15 earned-run average in nine games there this season. Ryu also loves pitching in big moments, as he threw seven scoreless innings in the showdown series opener against Colorado in mid-September, then gave up one run in six innings during crunch time in San Francisco last weekend."If the soon-to-be-free-agent lefty can keep pitching at a high level, it would provide a huge boost for the Dodgers.The Braves shouldn't be counted out, though.With Ronald Acuna Jr. setting the table and veterans Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis shouldering the run-production load, they're capable of getting to that impressive Dodgers staff.Meanwhile,the trio of Mike Foltynewicz, Anibal Sanchez and Kevin Gausman atop the rotation has a chance to be formidable, with lefty Sean Newcomb or the aforementioned Teheran likely taking the ball in Game 4.The Braves were counted out by many before the season started, and then again when the Philadelphia Phillies seemed poised to take control of the division at the end of July, yet here they are.There's no question they're underdogs, but stranger things have happened.Prediction:Dodgers in 5Odds to Reach World Series (via OddsShark)Dodgers: +170Brewers: +250Rockies: +325Braves: +520All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs, unless otherwise noted.
