The San Francisco Giants have their opponent set for the NLDS and it is a familiar rival.
The Giants will play the Los Angeles Dodgers in a five-game series after the Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals last night in the wildcard game. It was a historic regular season for both teams as the Giants and the Dodgers finished with the first and second best records respectively in all of Major League Baseball. This will be the first time these two teams have faced off in the playoffs in this longtime rivalry. Game one will be tomorrow night in San Francisco.
“It's what baseball wants,” added Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. “Giants, Dodgers, one of the great rivalries in sports, and it's happening.” The game will air on TBS at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 PT on Friday. It is also available to stream on MLB.TV with authentication.
