Manager Dave Roberts hinted that pitcher Max Scherzer will not be called to relieve in Game 5 of the series against the Giants. The reason is that the right-hander worked hard in his first playoff outing on Monday of this week.
On the side of the Giants they are going for the culmination of a very positive campaign for them. After not being considered among the favorites for their division, the team captured the divisional pennant and now they are going for the crown.
