Gabe Kapler announces starter for Game 4 of NLDS

After a windswept Game 3 punctuated by stellar pitching, an outlandish Brandon Crawford grab and some would-be home runs kept in the ballpark thanks, discernibly, to the ghosts of Chavez Ravine, the San Francisco Giants are one game away from an NLCS berth.

While Gabe Kapler had previously left open the option to go with a bullpen start, he’ll eschew that route and go traditional. After the 1-0, Kapler said Anthony DeSclafani would start Game 4 for the Giants on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers have yet to announce their Game 4 starter, but Tony Gonsolin has been pegged as the likeliest option for that slot, at least before the loss. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said afterwards that “everything is on the table.”

Game 4 is scheduled for 6:07 p.m. on Tuesday night.
