The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers will face off in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series with the winner advancing to face the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series.

The Dodgers stretched the seven-game series to a deciding game with a 3-1 win over Atlanta Saturday at the neutral site in Arlington, Texas.

Atlanta last won the pennant in 1999. It’s been 25 years since the Braves won a World Series.

Rookie Ian Anderson, who started Game 2 won by the Braves, will take the mound for Atlanta Sunday. Los Angeles will start Dustin May, who threw 55 pitches over two innings in L.A.’s win in Game 5. Rookie Tony Gonsolin — who allowed five runs in 4 1/3 innings in Game 2 opposite Anderson — is still expected to pitch.
