The Atlanta Braves are moving on to the National League Championship Series after completing a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins. They will face either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the San Diego Padres in the NLCS with Game 1 scheduled for Monday. The Dodgers lead their NLDS matchup over the Padres 2-0 and can punch their ticket Thursday night.

The series will be held in the MLB’s postseason bubble with all games being played at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Major League Baseball will be allowing a limited number of fans into the stadium. Somewhere around 11,500 tickets are expected to be available for each game of the series.

As was the case in the Wild Card round and the Division Series, there will be no off days in the League Championship Series. Game 1 will take place on Monday with a possible Game 7 scheduled for Sunday. Game times haven’t been announced yet but the series will be broadcast on either FOX or FS1.
