The 2021 NLDS between the Giants and Bums moves to Los Angeles tonight with Alex Wood facing Max Scherzer in the GIGANTIC Game 3 Contest.
The Giants are hoping to bounce back from an epic bullpen catastrophe that turned a 2-1 game in the sixth into a 9-2 debacle. But that is ancient history and tonight the proverbial slates are wiped clean. The Giants need only take one of the next two in Tinseltown to force the decisive Game 5 at Willie Mays Field.
Scherzer has allowed a gazillion runs in his last three starts, though he was mildly better in the Wild Card Game.
First Pitch is at 6:37 PM, Fernando Valenzuela time. The game is airing on TBS.
Expect a Lefty line up tonight. MLB.com projects the following:
- Tommy La Stella, 2B
- Wilmer Flores, 1B
- Brandon Crawford, SS
- Buster Posey, C
- LaMonte Wade Jr., RF
- Kris Bryant, LF
- Mike Yastrzemski, CF
- Evan Longoria, 3B
- Alex Wood, P
