The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers will meet again Sunday night in Game 2 of the NLCS. The Braves will be looking to go up 2-0 in the series but will face a stiff test in Dodgers starter Max Scherzer. Ian Anderson will be on the mound for Atlanta and will be making his third career start against the Dodgers in the postseason.

No surprises for the Braves in their lineup for Game 2. Eddie Rosario is back in the leadoff spot and will be followed by the familiar trio of Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies and Austin Riley. Joc Pederson will hit fifth and play right field. Travis d’Arnaud is back behind the plate and will hit seventh.

Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers starting lineup for Game 2 as the teams loads up on left-handed hitters against Anderson. Gavin Lux will get the start in center field and will hit fifth. Chris Taylor moves in from center to third base and will sixth. Cody Bellinger gets the start at first base and will be hitting seventh.

Sunday’s game is scheduled to begin at 7:38 p.m. ET and can be seen on TBS.
