Both teams are turning to pitchers who have delivered victories to their squads this postseason. The Giants will hand the ball over to Logan Webb, who shot 7.2 scoreless frames with five hits allowed and 10 strikeouts in Game 1 of the series to put San Francisco up in the series.

The Dodgers will have reliever Corey Knebel open the game with Julio Urias ready to pitch most of the innings. Urias allowed a five-inning run to the Giants in Game 2 with three hits and one walked while striking out five. Knebel fanned two while pitching a scoreless, hitless seventh inning of that Game 2 meeting as the Dodgers finished with a 9-2 victory.
