A look at the first two games of the National League Division Series between the Dodgers and Giants in San Francisco. The games provided extremes for the Dodgers offense, with Logan Webb dominating in Game 1 and the bottom of the order shining in Game 2.

Now with a tied series, the Dodgers and Giants move things to Los Angeles, with Max Scherzer and Alex Wood facing off in Game 3 on Monday. That means Albert Pujols starts at first base and Chris Taylor in centerfield as the Dodgers try for their first advantage of the NLDS.

Game 4 currently has a matchup that is TBD vs. TBD, but with a rested bullpen and off days built into the NLDS schedule, bullpen usage figures to be aggressive especially on Tuesday. Julio Urías, who threw only 72 pitches in five innings in Game 2, will be available in relief if needed in the latter part of the series.

We’ve kept producer Brian Salvatore busy with three episodes in a week, but he’s been more than up to the task, because he’s great.
