Dodgers Beat The Giants To Head To San Francisco For Winner-Take-All Game 5
It’s often said that the greatest two words in all of sports are “Game 7.”
And while Thursday night’s win-or-go-home tilt between the Dodgers and Giants is technically Game 5 of the five-game series, it will no doubt still have that unique energy and urgency that comes along with do-or-die games in sport.
The winner will advance to the National League Championship Series against the winner of the Braves-Brewers series. The loser will transition from working on their baseball swing to working on their golf swing.
The Dodgers forced a deciding Game 5 after a 7-2 win Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium over their NL West rival the San Francisco Giants. The boys in blue went ahead in the early innings and stayed ahead all nine innings.
L.A. will have to win on the road, however, with San Francisco holding home field advantage thanks to their better record.
First pitch from Oracle Park is at 6:07 p.m.
