The Los Angeles Dodgers find themselves down 2-0 in the National League Championship Series to the Atlanta Braves for a second straight season and will look to Walker Buehler to lend a good start on Tuesday in a pivotal Game 3.
Buehler enters having allowed at least three runs in four of his last eight starts after having allowed two runs or fewer in 11 of his previous 12 starts entering September and the team is 4-4 in this stretch.
The Braves counter with Charlie Morton, who has been at his best on the road, posting a 3.06 ERA on the road versus a 3.67 ERA at home and between the regular season and postseason. He has surrendered a five home runs in 94 ¹/₃ innings away from Atlanta this season.
The Braves bullpen since the All-Star break ranks fourth in the league in ERA, and between the regular season and postseason, the team has allowed four runs or fewer in seven straight games and 11 of their last 12.
The Braves have won five straight postseason games and overall are 17-3 in their last 20 games and will extend that steak on Tuesday in Los Angeles.
The play: Braves, +155.
