Game 3 of the Braves-Dodgers series will start at 8:07 p.m. Sunday at Dodger Stadium. … There’s a chance that the Dodgers’ Vin Scully, 85, a legend, might go only one more season as the club’s broadcaster. It’s a job he’s held for 64 seasons. “I’m pretty well sure — and I don’t want to go back and forth with it — but I’m looking to next year and thinking that should be about it,” Scully told KPCC. He later told the Los Angeles Times that “I look at each year as possibly my last. Next year will be no different. It all boils down to come July or August, how I feel physically. I’ll look at how many mistakes I’ve made and if they’re coming for me yet, and how I feel. I wasn’t making a declaration. I guess it was misconstrued. Each year is my last, until the next one. I never say yes or no.”
