SEATTLE (AP) Washington always found a way to lose close games last season.

This year, the Huskies are 2-for-2 in finishing off tight games.

"Today in overtime proved it. We were really, really sound. We executed well, we were able to move the ball and we were able to make things happen," Washington quarterback Jake Locker said.

Locker threw a career-high five touchdown passes, two in overtime to Jermaine Kearse, and Oregon State's 2-point conversion attempt in the second overtime fell incomplete as the Huskies beat the No. 24 Beavers 35-34 on Saturday night.

PHILADELPHIA -- A single victory had singular meaning for the Giants, who outlasted the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-3, in Saturday night's National League Championship Series opener.

The Giants ignored their status as heavy underdogs against the Phillies, who are widely considered the class of the NL and are striving to become the league's first team since the 1942-44 St. Louis Cardinals to win three consecutive pennants.

Fueled by two homers from Cody Ross and resolute pitching by Tim Lincecum, Javier Lopez and Brian Wilson, the outcome dented the Phillies' invincibility by ending their seven-game winning streak in postseason openers.
