There will be a Game 5 one of the playoff series going on right now. The NLDS between the NL West rivals is going to one final game to determine who will advance and face the Atlanta Braves after the Los Angeles Dodgers upended the San Francisco Giants 7-2 to keep their hopes of defending their World Series crown alive. Trea Turner’s RBI double in the bottom of the first kickstarted affairs, and Chris Taylor hit a sac fly to drive in another in the second.
Mookie Betts’ two-run home run in the fourth made it 4-0 before the Giants finally scraped a run across. Betts, however, hit a sac fly of his to respond. The Giants got one late, via Kris Bryant’s grounder in the eight, but Will Smith hit a two-run shot in the bottom half of the frame to make it a five-run edge and finish up the scoring. Game 5 will take place back in San Fran, where these two teams will finally get the chance to get rid of their most-hated rivals.
