Dodgers NLCS vs Braves: When Does LA Play Next? Game Times, How to Watch, and More

Your Los Angeles Dodgers are moving on to the next round of the playoffs where a rematch of last year’s NL pennant series awaits! After a stressful series against the San Francisco Giants, LA has an off day travel day on Friday before game 1 of the Championship Series on Saturday.

Last year, as we remember, the Dodgers and Braves matched up for an LCS for the ages. With the boys in blue at one point facing 3-1 series deficit, they rallied to rattle off 3 wins in a row to shock Atlanta and the baseball world, earning the club’s third National League pennant in 4 years.

Now, these two teams feature new faces, familiar faces in new places, and a whole lot more in the best of 7 series.

NLCS Details

Again, the NLCS is a best-of-7 series with the winner needing 4 wins to move on to the World Series. The biggest head scratcher for some is the fact that, despite the Dodgers having the better record, the Braves have the home field advantage by virtue of being a division winner.

The series goes 2-3-2, with the middle three games at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and the first two and last two game at Truist Park in Atlanta. Unlike last year, the series has scheduled off days for travel (on Monday, October 18, and Friday, October 22).

How to Watch

Once again, TBS will be the home of the television broadcast, featuring Brian Johnson and Ron Darling on the play-by-play. It can also be watched on the TBS app.

As always, AM570 LA Sports Radio will be the home of the radio broadcast, featuring Charley Steiner and Rick Monday on the call.

  1. I will make a bold prediction that the series doesn’t make it back to Atlanta. I’m going with Dodgers in 5.

  2. Why the hell are we stuck on TBullsh*t Nutwork with those two overly biased asswipes calling the Dodgers games when they were so blantantly against the Boys in Blue the whole giants series? Pisses me off. Why don’t they put the cheaters’ games on the crappier network. The Dodger fans who watch around the world have to suffer through games with these two crappy blabber mouths.

    1. RonW,
      Just be glad it’s not those two female “ Magpies” on ESPN! They talk about everything irrelevant to the game.
