In a seven game series, the winning team needs four victories to advance to the next round. Although the Phillies hold only a 2-1 series advantage, make no mistake: Tonight is a must-win for this Dodgers squad. Following last night’s public execution of Hiroki Kuroda, the Boys in Blue are reeling.

In a mirror scene to last year, the Dodgers find themselves in a familiar Game 4 scenario where a victory knots the series and a loss puts it out of reach. On paper, today’s match-up between Randy Wolf and Joe Blanton appears to be the Dodgers’ most favorable. This will be Joe Blanton's first start this postseason.
