Of course the Dodgers and Giants, the two best teams in MLB, need the full five games to decide the National League Division Series.
These two teams are down to one game to decide things after splitting two games at Dodger Stadium, just like they did in the first two games at Oracle Park in San Francisco. Even the way the two games in each city went were similar.
We recap the two games in Los Angeles, including a wildly windy Game 3, in which Max Scherzer found his groove again, but the Dodgers offense scuffled again while the Giants defense was impeccable. Then in Game 4, the Dodgers found that offense again, kind of like in Game 2, threatening in nearly every inning. And Walker Buehler “checked a box” by starting on three days rest for the first time in his career, pitching well in Tuesday’s win.
The matchup for Game 5 is fantastic. Logan Webb dominated the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS, Julio Urías won Game 2, and both teams won over 80 percent of these pitchers’ starts this season.
One game to see who plays the Braves in the NLCS.
