Corey Knebel Will Start Game 5 Of The NLDS Tonight

Right-handed reliever Corey Knebel will get the ball to start against the San Francisco Giants Thursday night before likely giving it to Julio.

Urias was expected to get the start in Game 5 but it appears manager Dave Roberts is going with the opener strategy against their division rivals. Urias started Game 2 for the Dodgers, allowing one run in five innings of work en route to a 9-2 victory. During the season, he pitched to an ERA of 2.96 in 32 starts over 185.2 innings and led the league with 20 wins. 

Knebel, 29, opened four games during the regular season and posted a 2.45 ERA in 25.2 innings spread out over 27 appearances.
