What's at stake for Dodgers, Mets tonight

The Dodgers and Mets will face each other in one National League Division Series and the two clubs are competing for home-field advantage in the best-of-five series. The Dodgers can clinch home field if they beat the Padres tonight, after the Mets lost both ends of a doubleheader to the Nationals at Citi Field.

All possible postseason tiebreakers explained

In the event both clubs finish with the same record, the Mets hold the tiebreaker by virtue of winning the season series against the Dodgers, 4 games to 3.
