WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN GAME 5

Mets are at the Dodgers tonight in Game 5 of the NLDS. Here's what to watch for.
  1. 1.
    Zack Greinke has a 1.52 ERA at home this season. Not too shabby, and rather important considering that the game's in Los Angeles.
  2. 2.
    A study from the University of Chicago found that umpires favor the home team when it comes to balls and strikes. We'll see how the guys in blue do tonight.
  3. 3.
    If Mets starter Jacob deGrom struggles, New York will make Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey available. Clear advantage in bullpens goes to the Mets.
  4. 4.
    Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis carries a 12-game postseason hitting streak into Game 5. That's a Dodgers record.
  5. 5.
    Expect lots of strikeouts. So far, the teams have combined for 89 Ks through four games. That ties the record for most Ks in a postseason series.
