Sports news

Two of MLB’s three 100-game winning teams remain in the playoffs. By the time Thursday night’s NLDS game is over, only one will be left.

The Dodgers and Giants lived up to the hype going into the 2021 MLB playoffs as the Giants to 107 wins and the Dodgers to 106 wins gave baseball fans the only divisional series to end in a win-win match.

Both teams look to pitchers who delivered wins to their teams in the playoffs. The Giants will hand the ball to Logan Webb, who threw 7.2 scoreless frames with five hits and 10 strikeouts in Game 1 of the series to put San Francisco in the series.

The Dodgers will have reliever Corey Knebel to open the game with Julio Urias set to pitch most of the innings. Urias gave the Giants a run in five innings in Game 2 with three hits and one walk conceded, while striking out five. Knebel whipped up two while pitching a scoreless, hitting seventh inning of Game 2 as the Dodgers finished with a 9-2 victory.
