SAN FRANCISCO -- The Los Angeles Dodgers will be making a lot longer trip than they hoped to begin the playoffs.Ace Clayton Kershaw got outpitched by rookie Ty Blach and the NL West champion Dodgers lost to the San Francisco Giants 3-0 Saturday, costing them a chance at home-field advantage in the Division Series.Los Angeles has lost four of five since clinching their fourth straight division title.Rather than commuting from their homes to Dodger Stadium, the LA contingent will open the best-of-five playoffs at NL East champion Washington.Were on a little bit of a slide here but were still in good position, manager Dave Roberts said.Kershaw (12-4) gave up three runs, two of them unearned, in seven innings. He gave up a home run to Angel Pagan in the fifth to break a scoreless tie.They were swinging from the get-go, Kershaw said. I made a few dumb pitches, a few I shouldnt have thrown. Probably caught too much of the plate on a few. Overall it was kind of a frustrating day.Kershaw is set to pitch the playoff opener in Washington.The Dodgers-Giants result was posted on the videoboard at Nationals Park in the seventh inning while Washington played Miami. It was announced that the Nationals had clinched the home field, and the crowd responded with a standing ovation.The Giants stayed one game ahead of St. Louis for the second NL wild-card slot. The Cardinals beat visiting Pittsburgh 4-3 earlier in the day.Matt Moore will start for the Giants on Sunday, and a win -- or St. Louis loss -- puts them in the playoffs. The New York Mets will host the NL wild-card game on Wednesday night.Blach (1-0) earned his first big league victory, pitching eight innings of three-hit ball. He struck out six and walked one in his second start in the majors, and also got his first two hits.This was the fourth game in the majors for Blach since the 25-year-old lefty made his major league debut in September.Thats one of the best pitching performances Ive seen, with this kid having a month in the major leagues, the stage he was on, whats at stake, who he was going against, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. He just had great focus and great command. This kid was locked in.Sergio Romo pitched a hitless ninth for his fourth save.One day after gaining national attention for body-slamming a fan who had run onto the field, Pagan hit a 1-1 pitch from Kershaw into the left-field stands. It was Pagans 12th home run of the season and his first off Kershaw in 68 career at-bats.The Dodgers were limited to three singles and got only one runner to second base.Blach got Joc Pederson to ground into an inning-ending double play in the second after the Dodgers put two on, struck out the side looking in the third and retired 11 straight during one stretch.Los Angeles third baseman Justin Turner also committed a throwing error in the seventh when the Giants scored a pair of unearned runs off Kershaw.Kershaw retired 12 of the first 13 before Pagans one-out homer leading off the fifth.UP NEXTDodgers: Kenta Maeda (16-10) pitches the finale at AT&T Park on Sunday.

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St.OTTAWA, Ontario -- For a team playing its third game in four nights, the Minnesota Wild looked plenty fresh on Sunday night -- even in overtime.Matt Dumba scored late in the extra session and Darcy Kuemper stopped 35 shots, helping Minnesota beat the Ottawa Senators 2-1.The Wild were coming off a 3-2 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday after beating Pittsburgh on Thursday.Its not the end of the world to play back-to-backs, and I thought we held on and did a good job, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.Ryan Suter scored a short-handed goal in the first period and Kuemper helped the Wild kill off three early power plays.Were not a team that wants to get behind 3-0, so getting those three kills and getting out of the first period with a lead was really important for us Id say, Boudreau said.Craig Anderson made 40 saves and was again solid for the Senators, who got a goal from Kyle Turris 5:06 into the third period. Ottawa has 11 goals over its last eight games and are 1 for 24 on the power play.I love the way were playing, were giving ourselves a chance to win by being there at the end, Anderson said. The positive out of not scoring right now is that even though guys might be showing some frustration, theyre still doing their jobs on the defensive side of the puck which is allowing us to get points and give ourselves an opportunity to be in each game.Despite their hectic schedule of late, the Wild controlled much of the action with Ottawa looking disorganized for most of the night.We had all kinds of scoring chances, but we just cant find the back of the net, Senators coach Guy Boucher said.dddddddddddd Its a matter of creating the same chances and then having some go in and youre able to relax and not grip the stick so tight.Turris finally got Ottawa on the board when he beat Kuemper far stick-side with a wrist shot.Bouchers decision to dress seven defenseman worked out when Marc Methot left after the first period with a lower-body injury and did not return. Boucher said after the game that Ottawa knew Methot was dealing with an issue, which is why the Senators used an extra defender.Suter scored late in the first and Ottawa continued to struggle in the second, leaving Anderson to keep the team in the game. He made huge saves on Nino Niederreiter and Erik Staal to keep it 1-0.The Senators had four power-play opportunities and struggled to create offense, a common refrain for the team as of late.The Wild made the Senators power play look even worse when they scored short-handed. Staal got off a shot and Suter was there for the rebound.Game notesLW Matt Puempel was a late healthy scratch for the Senators. ... Minnesota LW Zach Parise (lower body) missed his sixth straight game. C Joel Eriksson and D Nate Prosser were a healthy scratch.UP NEXTWild: Host Calgary on Tuesday night.Senators: Play at Philadelphia on Tuesday night. ' ' '
