The Dodgers will be playing with their season on the line tonight. After winning 106 games in a rollercoaster of a season, Los Angeles plays San Francisco down 2 games to 1 tonight at Chavez Ravine. Everything is at stake and all options are in play for Dave Roberts.
But the good news is that conditions should be better than they were in Game 3. After the Dodgers watched several balls die out at the warning track on Monday night, the wind sounds like it will not be a factor in Game 4.
The weather in Los Angeles suggests that it will be cold, going under 60 degrees by the 6:07 start time. It should get somewhere in the mid-50s by the time the game gets into the later innings. But the Dodgers and Giants will NOT have to deal with the whipping wind.
And that’s probably really good news for the Dodgers after watching nothing go their way on Monday. For the moment, Dave Roberts has not yet named a starting pitcher and could go with a number of options.
The Giants will throw out Anthony DeSclafani on Wednesday night, a guy the Dodgers have tagged several times in 2021. In 5 starts against Los Angeles this year, he has allowed 22 earned runs in 27 innings of work.
