They are the team with more to lose — one win by the Dodgers, and a third straight National League West title is theirs. That will be the case again today, when Clayton Kershaw squares off with Madison Bumgarner for the fourth time this season.Monday’s game ended when Alejandro De Aza hit a sacrifice fly against Adam Liberatore in the 12th inning, allowing Marlon Byrd to tag up and score from third base. The Dodgers are winless in seven games in San Francisco this season. At least this time, they made it close.Dodgers starter Zack Greinke allowed two runs in seven innings. He allowed four hits, walked three batters and struck out seven. But he was replaced by Chris Hatcher to begin the eighth inning with the Dodgers trailing 2-1, and did not factor into the decision.With one start left in the season, Greinke will likely finish his Cy Young Award-caliber season with fewer than 20 wins. Greinke is 18-3 with a major-league leading 1.68 earned-run average.“It was a real intense game,” Greinke said. “I thought we played great. They played really good also.”For nine innings, Seager and Giants catcher Trevor Brown — two players with a combined 30 games of major league experience — did most of the damage on offense.In the second inning, Brown laced a double into right-center field, scoring two runs to put Greinke in an early hole. The former Hart High School and UCLA standout went 2 for 4 with a walk in his eighth major league game.In the bottom of the third inning, Carl Crawford stroked a two-out single to right field and stole second base. Seager (playing his 22nd game) lined a single to center field, scoring Crawford to cut the deficit in half.Giants starter Jake Peavy didn’t allow another hit in his seven innings. The right-hander walked one batter and struck out four.Tied 2-2, the Giants threatened to score in the bottom of the ninth. Buster Posey doubled with one out against Dodgers pitcher Juan Nicasio, who intentionally walked Brandon Crawford with first base open. Nicasio then got Byrd and Kelby Tomlinson to ground out to end the inning.In the top of the 10th inning, the Dodgers likewise put runners on first and second base with one out but failed to score. Batting left-handed against Giants closer Santiago Casilla, Jimmy Rollins popped out in foul territory. Left-hander Javier Lopez relieved Casilla and struck out Seager, a left-handed hitter, to end the inning.Again in the 11th inning, the Dodgers squandered a first-and-second, one-out scenario when Chase Utley grounded into an inning-ending double play.Finally, in the 12th inning, the Giants put runners at the corners with none out against Dodgers pitcher Yimi Garcia (3-5). The Dodgers scattered five players around the infield, but it was no defense for De Aza’s line drive to left field, which allowed Byrd to tag up and score easily. SAN FRANCISCO >> The Dodgers did not have an occasion to spray any champagne Monday night, so the furled-up plastic tarps above each of their lockers are still in place. That was the bottom line after a 3-2 loss in 12 innings to the San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers’ fourth loss in a row.The Dodgers still have a magic number, but no actual magic.At least they had a moment, the first of its kind on this road trip, where a sense of urgency seemed to kick in.It came in the ninth inning with the Giants leading 2-1 and needing three outs to end the game. Corey Seager and Adrian Gonzalez led off with back-to-back singles against Giants pitcher Josh Osich. Justin Turner then dropped a rare sacrifice bunt to move both runners up a base, and Andre Ethier grounded out to drive in the game-tying run.
