After a close 4-3 victory in Game 4, the Dodgers are now only one win away from their second World Series of the decade. LA leads Oakland 3-1 in this best-of-seven series, and they’ll send their ace to the mound tonight, Orel Hershiser.

Hershiser was dominant in game 2 of this series. He threw a shutout and held the Athletics to only three hits. He also struck out eight. Bulldog has been great for the Dodgers all postseason, as he’s allowed only three runs in 33 23 innings in work.

Here are tonight’s starting lineups:

Dodgers:

  1. Steve Sax - 2B
  2. Franklin Stubbs - 1B
  3. Mickey Hatcher - LF
  4. Mike Marshall - RF
  5. John Shelby - CF
  6. Mike Davis - DH
  7. Rick Dempsey - C
  8. Jeff Hamilton - 3B
  9. Alfredo Griffin - SS

Orel Hershiser - P

Athletics:

  1. Stan Javier - LF
  2. Dave Henderson - CF
  3. Jose Canseco - RF
  4. Dave Parker - DH
  5. Mark McGwire - 1B
  6. Ron Hassey - C
  7. Carney Lansford - 3B
  8. Tony Phillips - 2B
  9. Walt Weiss - SS

Storm Davis - P

We’ll be starting Game 5 at 5 p.m. PT. There isn’t a full version of the game on Youtube, it’s only split into two. So, once the first one ends, click on the link to Part 2 to join. If you join late, skip ahead to however minutes past 5 o’clock it is. It’s a little more difficult with it being broken into two parts, but I trust you’ll be able to do it!
