Victors of the National League West, the Giants have gotten home-field advantage all through the end of the season games and have tried not to need to play in a limited time offer NL Wild Card game against the super hot St. Louis Cardinals.

The Los Angeles Dodgers don’t have those extravagances.

The Dodgers are sending three-time Cy Young honor champ Max Scherzer to the hill to go head to head against Cardinals’ righty Adam Wainwright on Wednesday night.

With Scherzer inaccessible for any potential end of the week games against the Giants, Dodgers administrator Dave Roberts reported Tuesday evening that Walker Buehler and Julio Urias would pitch Games 1 and 2 of the conceivable NLDS matchup.

Goliaths director Gabe Kapler presently can’t seem to declare starters for any of the NLDS games, yet in the event that the Dodgers were to beat the Cardinals and advance, Buehler, one of the Dodgers’ various aces on the staff, would face a Giants group who last scored six runs in three innings against him on Sept. 5.

Urias, who is the main 20-game victor in MLB this season, has given up two runs or less in everything except one of his five complete beginnings against the Giants this season. The anomaly was a May 29 beginning where the Giants scored six sudden spikes in demand for 11 hits against him.

The greatest storyline encompassing the Dodgers this postseason has been the elbow wounds to both beginning pitcher Clayton Kershaw and first baseman Max Muncy. Kershaw is relied upon to miss the whole postseason, while Muncy actually gets an opportunity to return.

In the event that the Dodgers are to progress to the NLDS – and that is a major “if” due to how hot the Cardinals have been – it’s turning out to be a phenomenal series against two warmed opponents.
