NLCS Pre-Gamin’: Dodgers at Braves (7:08 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Atlanta Braves (3-2) have another chance to eliminate the Los Angeles Dodgers from our seasonal minds, and send themselves to the World Series, where they’d face the Houston Astros. It would be fine if the Braves won tonight, if you’re asking my opinion, but it’s not like I hate the Dodgers.

Those Dodgers send out Walker Buehler on short rest to keep their season alive, so he must be feel reasonably fresh. Of course, the Dodgers will happily follow him with a dozen or so relievers, so maybe they need only two or three innings out of Buehler.

The Braves go with youngster Ian Anderson, who has been excellent this postseason, and who might also need only last three or four innings to give the Braves a good chance.
