nlds between the dodgers and your san francisco giants happening tonight at oracle park. we're getting close first pitch is just about an hour and a half away sports anchor joe fonzi joining us now live from the ballpark. and joe even before game five gets started. the dodgers already threw a curveball at the giants when it comes to who's taking the mound for them? no you're right about that, and we've never been exactly in this position with these two long time rivals at
4:24 pm
fifth and deciding game and nlds divisional series for the right to move on to the national championship series. the giants just left the field. they took batting practice a couple of minutes ago. the dodgers are on now will give you look at them in the in the cage. but as you said, we assumed that this would be a pitching matchup of logan web against julio urias arrears the winning picture for the dodgers in game two and a guy who really has been a giant killer through most of his career, but the dodgers showing a little wrinkle into things, the giants are a team that relies heavily on platooning. that means when the opposing team has a left handed pitcher, they stacked their lineup with right handed batters, and vice versa. so corey can able will be the starter in this kind of opener role that baseball teams use now. and what that requires the giants to do is declare early on. are you going to go with a light lefty heavy line up and declare and then if we bring julio arias in later switched to writings and now all you're left handed batters have been used. so basically, it's a little bit of a wrinkle that's
4:25 pm
going to make the giants have to make a decision early, and here's what dodger manager dave roberts had to say about his decision. there's downside in doing it the way we chose to do this. it's something that corey's never started a playoff game. um but i think that ultimately we trust both players can handle this. and. we expect him go out there and execute and we feel, um in one game. put with the familiar with both clubs. this gives us the best chance to win tonight. it doesn't matter at this point. i mean, it's you know, we we've seen every picture that they have. well there is kind of a school of thought that says, when you start tweaking with things this late in the season and doing something you've never done before corey cannibal has made 27 relief appearances for the dodgers this year, but he hasn't started. there is a school of thought that says, you know, you kind of messing with things when you do that. no question about what the giants are doing.
4:26 pm
logan web has been their most effective started down the stretch. the 24 year old. all he's done is pitch on that sunday when the giants needed to win to clinch pitch very well then. pitch in game one of this series. i shut out. he lasted all the way until the eighth inning went 72 3rd gave up just three hits and no runs. so the giants start trying to fool anybody. they've got their guy they race, the guy that they want right there. as far as the dodgers concerned, this is a little bit of something that's out of the ordinary for them, and you never know how that's going to turn out. is that kind of a desperate move, or is it something that is going to make the giants forced their hand early and have to flip their lineup? that's guess what makes this so much fun guys. we get to see how it plays out. it's fascinating to see all the maneuvering happening even before first pitch. joe what is your sense? how much is this last minute pitching change. just dave roberts trying to get into gabe kapler's head. yes, a little bit of that. there's no no question. there's some gamesmanship that they are trying to make the giants declare early. are you going to
4:27 pm
flip your line up and then take those guys out of the lineup for later in the game when you might potentially need them, so he's going to make the giants have to force their hand by doing that? but there's also a school of thought that says, julio or is, uh. is the most effective dodger against the giants all year. so what would you tell sandy koufax or don drysdale or one mary shell? your ace? guess what? you're not starting in the fifth and deciding game. so those are the two schools of thought that's concerns plays out. yes it is. thank you so much, joe. i was actually reading that roberts sent gabe kapler courtesy tech because their buddies last night to let him know about this switch. so there you go alright
