MLB has announced the start times for the first two games of the NLDS. The Dodgers are at home awaiting the winner of the NL Wild card game. They’ll play either Colorado or Arizona in the NLDS. The start times for the first two games were announced and the Dodgers will have the late start times for both games at Dodger Stadium. Everyone was worried that the Dodgers would be forced to play the early games and we would have to figure out a way to skip work or school on Friday afternoon.
Fear not Dodger fans, the games will be in the evening. I say skip school or work anyways, because you should if you can. Game 1 will start at 7:30 PM PST and game 2 will start at 6:00 PM PST. The start times for the rest of the series have yet to be announced. All of the games will be televised on TBS.
Game 1 – Friday October 6 7:30 PM PST
Game 2 – Saturday October 7 6:00 PM PST
Game 3 – Monday October 9 TBA
Game 4 – Tuesday October 10 TBA
Game 5 – Thursday October 12 TBA
The Dodgers will give the ball to Clayton Kershaw for game 1. Rich Hill will take the mound in game 2, and the game 3 starter has yet to be announced. However it will probably be Yu Darvish. Manager Dave Roberts has also said that Kershaw will not start on short rest in this series, which means that he would be available to pitch a potential game 5.
