After beating the San Francisco Giants in their first postseason matchup in history, the Los Angeles Dodgers now face the Atlanta Braves in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.
Although the Dodgers won 18 more games during the regular season, the Braves hold home-field advantage because they are NL East champions while the Dodgers advanced through the Wild Card round after defeating the St. Louis Cardinals.
Game 1 begins on Saturday at 5:07 p.m. PT, and Game 2 will be played Sunday at 4:37 p.m. PT. The teams get a travel day on Monday before Games 3 and 4 take place at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If necessary, the Dodgers would also host a Game 5 on Thursday. If the NLCS is not decided after that, there will have another travel day Friday, Oct. 22, before playing potential Games 6 and 7 on Oct. 23-34.
TBS is the exclusive home of the NL bracket for the 2021 postseason. Like with the NLDS, Brian Anderson is handling play-by-play duties and he’s joined by analysts Ron Darling and reporter Lauren Shehadi.
Jeff Francoeur, who played with for Braves from 2005-09 and again in 2016, is joining the crew as an analyst for the NLCS.
The network’s on-site studio coverage throughout the NLCS will feature Pedro Martinez, Jimmy Rollins and Curtis Granderson alongside Bob Costas for pregame and postgame analysis.
This is the fifth playoff meeting between the two clubs. The Dodgers previously won their matchups in 2020, 2018 and 2013, while the Braves swept the NLDS in 1996.
The Dodgers and Braves met six times this season, with L.A. winning four of the games.
