Preview of the game, via the Associated Press:
It is only fitting that 70 years after Bobby Thomsons Shot Heard Round the World that the Giants and Dodgers will meet again in an all-or-nothing game.
Los Angeles 7-2 victory over San Francisco on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the NL Division Series evened the series and sent the first Major League Baseball playoff matchup between teams with at least 105 victories to Game 5 Thursday night at San Joses Oracle Park.
This is what baseball wants. I mean, I think, as I understand it, all of the episodes are over and were going to be the only show in town. If you have a pulse or are emulating sports, you better be watching the Dodgers-Giants, Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said.
This will be the third time that two hot rivals will meet in a final game to see who advances. The Giants won both of the 1951 and 1962 National League tiebreaker series to advance to the World Series.
This time, the winner will get a date with the Atlanta Braves in the NL Championship Series. Game 1 will be played on Saturday night in Atlanta or San Francisco.
Logan Webb will begin, according to Kapler. The 24-year-old right-hander will be the youngest Giants pitcher to start a deciding game.
Webb will make his fifth start this season against the Dodgers. In San Franciscos 4-0 win over Oakland last Friday in Game 1, he struck out 10 and allowed only five hits.
I dont think were going to spend a lot of time dissecting as team this time," he added. I think were going to get on the plane, have an off day, a real off week, Giants coach Gabe Kapler said. Well schedule our workout for a little while later. Well get ready for Game 5.
Im certain it will be a lively atmosphere. Its going to be great to return to Oracle and have the support of our fans. And, yes, were looking forward to it," he added.
Julio Uras will get the call in the deciding game, according to Roberts before Tuesdays game. Uras, who led the majors in victories and won the Dodgers first 20-game winner since Clayton Kershaw in 2014, will be facing San Francisco for the seventh time this year. The left-hander allowed one run on three hits in five innings in the Dodgers' 9-2 victory in Game 2 last Saturday.
The Giants, who won 107 games during the regular season, took 10 out of the 19 regular-season meetings. San Francisco won its first NL West title since 2012, beating the wild-card Dodgers, who won 106. That one-win advantage gave the team its seventh straight berth in the playoffs.
Thursday night will be the seasons 24th and final meeting.
"I think the playbook is kind of like we know each others playbooks, so now it just goes to old school, were going to run the ball to the right and youll have to stop us and itm the Vince Lombardi," Roberts said. Now its about going out there and executing and the best team wins, he added. We know what we do, they know how we perform, we know who they want to have the baseball in Game 5, they understand who we want and matchups that were trying to get, so it's like we're going to play, and we understand what our actions are, if they dont know, then we don't understand how they perform,
Kapler also echoed Roberts sentiments and stated that the club isn't about to alter what it has done all season.
Ive said this throughout the year, but the lineup that we throw out against lefties, the roster that I felt last time against Julio, is something I feel really good about, Kapler said. There are a lot of high-quality hitters, guys that see pitches, that can hit home runs against left-handed pitching, and their track record suggests that, he added.
The Giants delight is that these two franchises that met in 1884 share a bond in these crucial games.
In 1951, the New York Giants defeated Jackie Robinson and the Brooklyn Dodgers 5-4 at the Polo Grounds thanks to Thomson connecting for one of the most famous home runs in baseball history, a three-run drive in the bottom of th inning.
In 1962, the long-standing rivalry had moved from the East Coast to the West Coast when they met again in a best-of-three matchup for the NL pennant. San Francisco beat Sandy Koufax in the opener, then lost to Los Angeles to set up Game 3. Willie Mays, the former Giants pitcher, scored a key hit during 6-4 victory at Dodger Stadium in the ninth inning, as the Giant's great william May scored four runs.
Theyve each won 109 times this season. Its time to focus on one thing.
Walker Buehler, a Dodgers pitcher, said, I think its only right.
