MLB announced the start time for Game 3 of the 2019 National League Division Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals is set for 4:45 p.m. PT on Sunday. The Dodgers and Nationals are meeting in the NLDS for a second time in the past four years.
Washington held home-field advantage in 2016, when the Dodgers advanced to the NL Championship Series after winning a Game 5 at Nationals Park. Every game of this year’s postseason matchup between the two clubs is being televised on TBS.
Pitching probables beyond Game 1 — when Walker Buehler and Patrick Corbin will start opposite one another — are not yet known. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts again declined to set his full rotation during media availability prior to Wednesday’s workout at Dodger Stadium.
With Buehler pitching Game 1, he’s on line to be the starter should the NLDS go the full five games. Rich Hill remains scheduled to start a potential Game 4.
The Dodgers won four of seven head-to-head meetings against the Nationals this season, outscoring them 30-27. Included that was winning two contests at Nationals Park in late July.
