Game times were set for the remainder of the National League Division Series games between the Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals.
After the Braves’ victory Friday, Game 4 becomes a necessary game, and Game 5 is an if-necessary scenario. Here is the game-time breakdown for each:
» If the Braves-Cardinals’ Game 4 is the only NLDS game Monday, it would start at 5 p.m. The same is true if the Dodgers-Nationals play that day as the only NLDS game. Should both series need a Game 4, the Braves-Cardinals would play at 3 p.m. and the Dodgers-Nationals at 6:30 p.m.
» On Wednesday, if the Braves need a Game 5, that game would start at 5 p.m. if the Dodgers and Nationals need a Game 5. If the Dodgers-Nationals series has ended, the Braves and Cardinals would play at 8 p.m.
Here’s a breakdown of the two NLDS, including the matchup of the Dodgers and Nationals, which began Thursday night in Los Angeles.
