The 109-win Dodgers face off against the 109-win Giants, with the team getting victory no. 110 getting to move on to the NLCS.
Julio Urías doesn’t start — Corey Knebel does, as an opener — but Urías will eventually be in there for the Dodgers, the team having won his last 12 starts. Logan Webb starts for the Giants, with San Francisco 14-0 when he starts at home.
How important is this game?
To my knowledge, tonight's game between the @Dodgers and @SFGiants is the most important game in the history of their rivalry. With nearly identical records, and so much at stake, I believe this to be the case.— Vin Scully (@TheVinScully) October 14, 2021
