The NLCS will shift to Dodger Stadium Tuesday for Game 3 of the NLCS between the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Atlanta took the first two games at Truist Park and will be looking to take a commanding lead Tuesday with Charlie Morton on the mound. They will face a stiff test with Walker Buehler getting the start for Los Angeles.

Unsurprisingly, the Braves will stick with the same lineup for Game 3 of the series. Eddie Rosario sticks in the leadoff spot and Joc Pederson is back in right field hitting fifth. Travis d’Arnaud has caught every game this postseason and will hit seventh.

For the Dodgers, Justin Turner returns to the lineup as expected for Game 3. Gavin Lux gets the start in centerfield. Chris Taylor slides over to left replacing AJ Pollock who is 1-for-8 with three strikeouts in the NLCS.

Tuesday’s Game 3 is scheduled to get underway at 5:08 p.m. ET and can be seen on TBS.
