Nationals Avoid Elimination, Top Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of NLDS

Nationals Avoid Elimination, Top Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of NLDS

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Madison Bumgarner's throwing error in the seventh inning led to the Washington Nationals scoring two runs, while two more -- the last coming on a Bryce Harper solo home run in the ninth -- led the team to avoid elimination and top the San Francisco Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of their NLDS Monday.

The Giants' 10-game postseason winning streak is over, but they still lead the series 2-1.  

Both Bumgarner and Doug Fister pitched brilliantly. Fister allowed four hits, walked three, while striking out three in the win. Bumgarner pitched seven innings, allowing six hits, two earned runs, one walk, while striking out six in the loss -- he hadn't allowed a run in 21 straight postseason innings until the seventh inning.

Wilson Ramos put down a sacrifice bunt that rolled between the mound and the first-base line. Bumgarner fielded the ball and tried to get the runner out at third, but his throw went wide of Pablo Sandoval's glove, allowing Ian Desmond and Harper to score. Asdrubal Cabrera then hit an RBI single to give the Nationals a 3-0 lead.

San Francisco attempted to rally in the ninth, but Nationals' pitcher Drew Storen settled down after that, allowing only one run to score to force a Game 4, which will take place Tuesday in San Francisco. Gio Gonzalez will take the mound for Washington and will be opposed by Ryan Vogelsong.
