Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jake Peavy picked up his first career postseason win as the San Francisco Giants held on to beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 in their NL Division Series opener on Friday. Peavy (1-0) had a solid outing, scattering two hits in 5 2/3 scoreless innings. Buster Posey, Brandon Belt and Joe Panik each knocked in a run for the Giants, who have won nine straight playoff games. They were coming off Wednesdays 8-0 wild-card victory at Pittsburgh. Stephen Strasburg (0-1) gave up two runs in his postseason debut -- one earned -- on eight singles in five-plus innings for the NL East-champion Nationals. Final Score: St. Louis 10, Los Angeles 9 Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Carpenters four RBI against Clayton Kershaw included a three-run double in an eight-run seventh inning and the St. Louis Cardinals held on to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-9 on Friday to open their NL Division Series. Kershaw and Adam Wainwright squared off in the first postseason game in 45 years to featured two 20-win starters with sub-2.40 ERAs. But what was supposed to be a pitchers duel between two staff aces turned into a slugfest, and Kershaw saw the worst of it. The presumptive NL Cy Young Award winner retired 16 batters in a row between Randal Grichuks one-out homer on in the first inning and Carpenters two-out blast in the sixth and his team had a 6-1 lead after scoring six runs off Wainwright in 4 1/3 innings. But the first four Cardinals batters hit singles in the seventh, starting a deluge that didnt end until Kershaw was on the bench, presumably wondering how the NL Central champions got the best of him again. Last year, Kershaw gave up seven runs in four innings in the decisive Game 6 of the NL Championship Series, which the Cardinals won 9-0 to reach the World Series for the third time in eight years.

HABS HEADED TO CONFERENCE FINAL The Montreal Canadiens scored early in Game Seven, built a lead and protected it well on their way to a 3-1 series-clinching win over the Boston Bruins. While this game or series isnt necessarily a referendum on the value of fourth lines, the Canadiens certainly benefitted from production lower down their forward depth chart. Joe Torre Braves Jersey .com) - Joique Bells touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave the Detroit Lions a 20-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans didnt have time to think about blowing a second straight lead at home.This time, they just held on for the win.Even if it was against the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars, who hurt themselves late.Sammie Hill blocked a field goal attempt in the final seconds, and the Tennessee Titans held off the winless Jaguars 16-14 Sunday to snap a four-game losing streak.Huge, Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey said. Weve been fighting for a win for so long and to come out with a win like this, its kind of a bummer. But at the end of the day, a win is a win, and we fought to the end.Jackie Battle ran for a touchdown, and Ryan Succop also kicked three field goals as the Titans (2-4) bounced back after blowing the biggest lead ever by a home team in the regular season with their loss last week to Cleveland.It was a relief, Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst said. I think we kind of controlled the game most of the game, and we werent able to sustain a drive in the second half to put it away. It wouldve been a little easier on everybodys hearts. Its a win, and were very happy about it.Casey had two of Tennessees six sacks. The Titans forced two turnovers as they won their first game at home this season a€” only their second here in nine games.The Jaguars (0-6) scored with 37 seconds left as Blake Bortles found Clay Harbor for a 20-yard TD. They recovered the onside kick after Titans safety Michael Griffin couldnt hold onto the ball.But Hill got his right fingers on Josh Scobees 55-yard field goal attempt with 3 seconds remaining. Jacksonville had to kick on third-and-2 because coach Gus Bradley had no timeouts left, losing both his challenges and the timeouts that went with them.Bradley took the blame for not having a timeout. They usually need 17 seconds to rush the field goal unit out.I felt really confident, Bradley said of the distance. (Scobee) felt confident on the sideline, and it looked like it was going. It was the right direction and he got enough on it. It was just the height on it.Even though this game was a sellout, thousands of empty seats awaited two of the NFLs worst teams. The Titans gave their fans a reason to stick around to the end by making this more exciting in the final seconds than they wanted.dddddddddddd.Whitehurst threw for a career-high 233 yards in starting his second game in three weeks in place of the injured Jake Locker. He was out with a second injury to his right hand a€” this time his right thumb.But Bortles, the No. 3 overall draft pick, had his best day yet. He had 336 yards as the Jaguars outgained the Titans 379-290, and the rookie quarterback also led the Jaguars in rushing with 38 yards.Locker had plenty of company on the sideline as the Titans, who placed veteran starters safety Bernard Pollard (Achilles tendon) and left tackle Michael Roos (right knee) on injured reserve this week, started three rookies.Taylor Lewan, the No. 11 pick overall, replaced Roos. Second-round draft pick Bishop Sankey started at running back with Shonn Greene (hamstring) out.Avery Williamson started his second straight game at inside linebacker. And the rookie returned a fumble 41 yards with 4:25 left to help seal the win.The Jaguars came in second in the NFL behind only the Bills and Jets with 16 sacks. They added three more of Whitehurst as they hit him repeatedly during the game.Bortles was nearly perfect in helping the Jaguars open a game with their first touchdown drive this season. They went 80 yards on a drive capped by a 1-yard TD by another rookie Storm Johnson, Bortles teammate at UCF.Jacksonville also forced the Titans to settle for field goals. The Titans took the lead for good when Battle capped an 80-yard drive with a 1-yard plunge just before halftime for a 10-7 edge.The Jaguars had their chances. Titans cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson picked off Bortles pass at the Tennessee 16 in the third quarter and ran it back to midfield. Succop put Tennessee up 16-7 with his third field goal, a 42-yarder.Notes: Casey had his fifth game with two sacks in a game. ...
