It’s time for the series finale between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers and, fittingly, this game will determine the series.

The Giants will leave the park today with either a three-game lead in the NL West or a one-game lead. Personally I would prefer the former.

Notes

Roster moves: The Giants made some moves on Thursday, activating shortstop Brandon Crawford and right-handed pitcher Aaron Sanchez off the 10-day and 60-day ILs, respectively. To make room for them, outfielder Mike Tauchman was designated for assignment, and right-handed pitcher John Brebbia was optioned.

Posey update: Buster Posey is still on the roster after leaving Wednesday’s game due to dizziness following a foul tip off his mask. Gabe Kapler is hoping that Posey will be available to pinch-hit today.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
