Watch Crawford and La Stella's impressive double play vs. Dodgers

The National League Division Series between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers has lived up to the hype so far. 

Three innings after Buster Posey launched a two-run homer to give the Giants an early 2-0 lead in Game 1, infielders Brandon Crawford and Tommy La Stella got the crowd on its feet once more with a flashy double play to end the top of the fourth inning. 

The Giants have had their fair share of defensive highlights this season, but this one ranks near the top given how impressive it was and the magnitude of the game. 

It wasn't the first time Crawford helped manufacture an impressive double play in a postseason game after an impressive toss from his second baseman. If you remember Game 7 of the 2014 World Series, former Giants second baseman Joe Panik dove and flipped the ball to Crawford, who turned one of the most iconic double plays in franchise history.

This isn't Game 7 of the World Series, but nevertheless still a very important play in a playoff game against an archrival. 

Plays like these are the ones that help energize a club when it matters most.
