San Francisco-If the Dodgers and Giants only provide a glimpse of a possible playoff series, then the October duel between these rivals may be a once in a lifetime.
“I can imagine this will be the most intense playoff series I have ever played,” San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt said.
The September showdown was also good.
Steven Dag hit two and three pointers after being called up earlier in the day. Bell homered. The Giants ended their key weekend series against Los Angeles on September 5 with a score of 6-4. The weak NL West lead.
San Francisco did this for the second consecutive bullpen game and watched another home run by Albert Pujols at the age of 41.
“It’s not a retreat, up and down the lineup, the bullpen,” Dag said. “As long as we start our preparations, everyone will go all out. It’s just fun. It’s fun to come on the court, fasten your seat belt and go to the game.”
Pujols hit No. 678 of his career home run. In the ninth inning of the Giants approaching Jake McGee, he hit a two-pointer with a two-pointer. The latter knocked out Max Muncy’s singles, and then Mookie Betts in the ninth inning. Retired in three strikes. The final was replayed and confirmed after right fielder Mike Yastrzemski caught Justin Turner’s flight to the net in the foul zone.
“We lost a series, we were defeated, we could have done different things, obviously this may be the difference in the series,” Dodge team manager Dave Roberts said. “We have to find a way to quickly turn the page. Tomorrow we have a game to win.”
Brandon Crawford had an RBI duo and Darin Ruf hit a single home run in the second game as San Francisco defeated Walker Buehler for the first time (13-3). He scored 7-0 with a 1.83 ERA in the first 12 games and 10 games against the Giants. Since giving up six times to Colorado on September 2, 2019, the right-hander has not allowed more than five times.
“The worst thing I have encountered in a long time,” he said.
In the last regular-season matchup between opponents, the Giants scored a season-high six points with 7 hits in three games. San Francisco (87-50) now has a divisional lead and has any tiebreaker—for example, if they end a playoff game with the same record, they have home court advantage—and the defending World Series champion (86-50) ) 51) After winning the season series 10-9.
Here is how close these clubs are in 2021: The Dodgers defeated the Giants 80-78.

José Álvarez entered second and surrendered Will Smith before the winner Zack Littell (2-0) breathed a sigh of relief and hit two RBI singles.
“Back-to-back bullpen life is very difficult,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said. “It’s no secret. A hallmark of this team is that it can handle challenging situations and is good at handling challenging situations.”
San Francisco avoided losing three consecutive games for the first time in the entire season.
“It really feels like the atmosphere of the playoffs,” Bell said, “…now is a crucial moment.”
