Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The National League Division Series matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks will shift to Chase Field on Monday for Game 3, and if necessary a Game 4 on Tuesday. MLB announced start times for those contests, but they hinge on other playoff scenarios.

Should each American League Division Series end in a sweep, first pitch for Game 3 at Chase Field will be set for 6:08 p.m. PT. If only one ALDS results in a sweep, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks will begin play at 7:08 p.m. That will also be the start time if both ALDS matchups see a Game 4 on Monday.

As for a potential Game 4 between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, first pitch will be Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 6:08 p.m. if the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals are also playing a fourth game in their matchup. If there is only one NLDS game to be played Tuesday, it will begin at 5:08 p.m. PT.

Should the Dodgers and D-Backs go to a Game 5 on Thursday, Oct. 12, first pitch at Dodger Stadium will either be 5:08 p.m. or 6:08 p.m. They will have an earlier start time if it’s the only NLDS game being played that day.

Regardless of the scenarios, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks will have primetime slots throughout the NLDS. Game 1 begins Friday night at 7:31 p.m., while first pitch at Dodger Stadium for Game 2 is 6:08 p.m.
