Dodgers beat Giants to extend Division Series to fifth challenge

Mookie Betts and Will Smith hit home runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 7 runs by 2, ensuring a fifth and final game in the Major League National League Division Series.

San Francisco’s starting pitching faltered and its starter, Anthony DeSclafani, could barely get five outs in the game. The attack by those led by Dave Roberts began with a double from Trea Turner, which brought the first run in the first episode.

Then they relied on the home runs of Betts and Smith to get the final figures in the clash, which extended the series to one more clash, to be played this Thursday. The Giants have announced Logan Webb as a starter while the Dodgers will have Julio Urías on the mound.

The Atlanta Braves, who dispatched the Milwaukee Brewers, await the winner of this pairing in the National League Championship Series.
