Dodgers vs Giants: Times, TV channel, radio and how to watch the Game 5 online tonight

Tuesday, Oct 12, the Los Angeles Dodgers avoided elimination, beating the San Francisco Giants 7-2 in Game 4 of their National League Division Series. The Dodgers levelled the best-of-five matchup at 2-2, forcing tonight’s decisive Game 5 at Oracle Park, San Francisco.

Los Angeles’ starter Walker Buehler delivered 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball with four strikeouts, setting the tone for the rest of the game against the Giants. For the first time in his career, Buehler pitched on three days’ rest and was still able to set a stellar top for the first inning, with his fastball velocity reaching 97.5 mph.

The Dodgers’ Julio Urías vs. the Giants’ Logan Webb

Dodgers: Julio Urias (20-3, 2.96 ERA), the 25-year-old Mexican-born pitcher who will be making his second start of the postseason allowed one run over five innings in the Dodgers’ Game 2 win at Oracle Park. In five season starts, the left-hander went 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA against the Giants, and tonight will be his seventh start against them in 2021.

Giants: Logan Webb (11-3, 3.03 ERA) is about to become the youngest pitcher in Giants history to start a winner-take-all postseason game at only 24 years old. He delivered a masterpiece in Game 1 where he racked up three strikes with 10 over 7 2/3 scoreless innings. In his past 14 appearances, Webb has gone 7-0 with a 1.78 ERA.

Both West rivals have won 109 games this year. The first to 110 will move to the NL Championship Series to face the Atlanta Braves.
