Braves Vs. Dodgers NLCS Schedule: Game 1 Start Time & TV Info

First pitch for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves has been set for 5:08 p.m. PT on Monday night and will air nationally on Fox.

Start times and TV info for the remainder of the NLCS have not yet been announced. For however the long the series goes at Globe Life Field, the Dodgers are holding drive-in viewing parties at Dodger Stadium. Admission is $75 per car and must be purchased in advance.

Neither club has publicly set their NLCS starting rotation, though it can be presumed the Dodgers will hand the ball to Walker Buehler in Game 1, followed by Clayton Kershaw in Game 2, just as they did for the Wild Card round and NL Division Series.

Los Angeles and Atlanta finished with the first- and third-best records in the NL, respectively. The San Diego Padres — whom the Dodgers swept in the NLDS — were sandwiched between them. Though, with how seeding translates to the playoffs, the Braves were the No. 2 team.

The NLCS matchup pits two teams who have yet to lose this postseason. Not only are the Braves a perfect 5-0, they have four shutouts. The counter to that is Atlanta has faced the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins, neither of who possess a lineup like that of the Dodgers.

For L.A., they now meet a team with a healthy pitching staff and dynamic position players, including NL MVP candidate Freddie Freeman. “They’re a really good team,” Dodgers catcher Will Smith said.

“A really high-powered offense, got some good arms. It should be a good matchup, a lot of good baseball. We’re looking forward to it.”
