Make sure if you’re not watching from Oracle Park in San Francisco, you get to the television at 6 p.m. PT when TBS starts their coverage of the final meeting of the season between the Dodgers and Giants.
The 24th and most important game between the two clubs will decide who faces the Braves in the National League Championship Series. The series will come to a close with two pitchers that have already pitched their team into the win column over the course of the first four games.
If the Dodgers are going to get past the Giants, they’ll have to deploy a different game plan against Logan Webb’s off-speed arsenal than in Game 1. The Dodgers couldn’t lay off Webb’s changeup or slider low and away and were caught off guard on fastballs in the strike zone.

Webb is 7-0 at Oracle Park this season if Game 1 is included and is 2-0 overall in four starts against the Dodgers this year, giving up just four earned in 23 2⁄3 innings (1.52 ERA). The right-hander shut the Dodgers down for 7 2⁄3 scoreless in Game 1.
Julio Urías is the man with the ball for the Dodgers after a solid five innings of one-run ball in Saturday’s 9-2 victory. Including the postseason, the Dodgers have won 27 of the 33 games Urías has started in 2021.
The Dodger lefty has done his own number on the Giants in 2021, especially on the road. Urías is 3-0 in San Francisco and has given up just four runs in 22 1⁄3 innings.
ESPN Radio has the national radio call, with Jon Sciambi and Kyle Peterson calling the Dodgers-Giants NLDS. AM 570 has the local radio broadcast, with Charley Steiner and Rick Monday.
