SAN FRANCISCO — In perhaps the biggest game in the 131-year history of the Los Angeles Dodgers-San Francisco Giants rivalry, the Dodgers have decided to rely on analytics instead of tradition, by not starting 20-game winner in favor of a reliever as an opener.

Really.

The Dodgers are starting veteran reliever Corey Knebel on Thursday night in their winner-take-all Game 5 of the National League Division Series instead of Julio Urias, creating a stir heard ‘round the baseball world.

“I wouldn’t say it’s riskier,’’ Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, “I think that what it does is it opens up for criticism. But I think that you can’t do a job for fear of failure or potential criticism. I think that you have to do your job given whatever you feel is the best way to win the game.
