Games 2 and 3 of the National League Championship Series between the Braves and Dodgers will begin at 6:05 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, MLB announced Monday. The games will be televised on FS1.

The schedule has been set for the first three games. The best-of-seven series will be played over consecutive days. The same goes for the simultaneous American League Championship Series, which began Sunday. The Rays lead the Astros, 1-0, in the best of seven.
