BASEBALL

The Atlanta Braves to host the Dodgers Saturday to start the National League Championship series. 8 p.m., TBS. Media release: The Dodgers’ path toward a second straight World Series title will reintroduce them to a Braves club that knows how close it was to competing in last year’s Fall Classic.

Atlanta and Los Angeles will meet in the National League Championship Series for a second straight year. The Braves owned a 3-1 series lead before the Dodgers claimed three straight victories to capture last year’s NLCS, which was played at Globe Life Field in Arlington.

“I don’t think anybody is looking to play the Dodgers to be vindicated,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “We’re happy to be here and playing good baseball. I think we’re a very confident team right now.”

The Braves will have home-field advantage because the Dodgers were a Wild Card entrant. That means Games 1, 2, 6 and 7 would be played in Atlanta, while Games 3, 4 and 5 would be played in Los Angeles.

When is Game 1 and how can I watch it?
The series opener starts at 8:07 p.m. ET/5:07 PT on Saturday at Truist Park and it will be televised on TBS. It is also available to stream on MLB.TV with authentication.

What might the starting lineups look like?
Dodgers:
 With lefty Max Fried expected to be on the mound for the Braves, the Dodgers will likely make some adjustments to their lineup for Game 1. Albert Pujols could get the start at first base over Cody Bellinger, and AJ Pollock could slot in at left field after losing out on some playing time to Gavin Lux.

  • Next: National League Championship Series on Saturday. Best of seven. Winner advances to the World Series.
  • MLB playoffs schedule: MLB
  • Dodgers edge Giants to take series, 2-1.
  • Astros, Red Sox open American League series tonight at 8 on Fox.
