ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves need to win three straight games against the Los Angeles Dodgers to avoid suffering a ninth consecutive playoff elimination dating to 2001.First Alex Gordon Jersey , though, the Braves need to worry about scoring a run as the best-of-five National League Division Series moves to SunTrust Park in Atlanta on Sunday night.The Dodgers, trying to make the NL Championship Series for the third consecutive year, won 6-0 and 3-0 in Los Angeles while holding the Braves to nine combined hits and issuing no walks.Article continues below ...The New York Giants in the 1921 World Series are the only other team to be shut out in the first two games of a postseason series.“We’ve just gotta go back home, regroup and win a game,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said.It may not get much easier for the Braves in Game 3 as the Dodgers turn to rookie right-hander Walker Buehler as they go for a sweep of the NL East champions.Buehler, who had a 2.03 ERA after the All-Star break, pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings Monday in the NL West tiebreaker against Colorado that gave the Dodgers their sixth straight division title.“Obviously this will be my first playoff game, but (Game) 163 has got to be somewhere between a regular game and a playoff game,” said Buehler, who finished with an 8-5 record and 2.62 ERA. “I’m just going with the same game plan, and try and stay under control.”Buehler beat the Braves in his only regular-season start against them as the 24-year-old allowed a run and two hits over 5 1/3 innings at Los Angeles on June 8.Worse yet for the Braves, that was when their offense was one of the best in the NL. That began to change in the second half and took a dive in September.The Braves are batting .145 in the two playoff games and have one extra-base hit, leaving the team with few answers after being completely stymied by Hyun-Jin Ryu and Clayton Kershaw.“I can probably move guys around,” said Snitker, who will bat Ender Inciarte second. “The same guys are going to be out there. We are what we are. We’ve just got to hope. I’m not sure moving guys around, giving them different looks in the lineup http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-george-brett-jersey , when you’re swinging the bats like we are, is even the answer.”Right-hander Kevin Gausman was slated to start Game 3, but Snitker changed his mind Saturday and will go with left-hander Sean Newcomb.Newcomb, who pitched two scoreless innings of relief in Game 1, had a no-hitter through 8 2/3 innings against the Dodgers in Atlanta on July 29, but had his ups and downs the rest of the season while finishing 12-9 with a 3.90 ERA.The Braves are 10-25 in postseason games since last winning a series in 2001, when they swept Houston in the NLDS. Atlanta hadn’t made the playoffs since 2013, when it lost 3-1 to the Dodgers in the NLDS.The Braves were 1-3 against the Dodgers in Atlanta during the regular season, with Newcomb getting the only win, and 2-5 overall versus Los Angeles. Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/Getty ImagesThe 2018 World Series kicks off on Tuesday night, as two of baseball's most storied franchises will square off in this year's Fall Classic.The Boston Red Sox won 108 games during the regular season and have avenged back-to-back ALDS exits by knocking off the rival New York Yankees and the reigning champion Houston Astros. The Red Sox have won three titles in the past 14 years and will look to make it four in 15 years this October.Opposing them on the National League side of things are the Los Angeles Dodgers, who came one win away from winning it all last year. Despite making six straight playoff appearances, the Dodgers are still seeking their first World Series title since 1988.Ahead you'll find the full TV schedule for this year's Series, including game times and channel information, as well as a quick preview of what to watch for.World Series ScheduleGame 1 (at BOS):Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 8:09 p.m. ET on FoxGame 2 (at BOS):Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8:09 p.m. ET on FoxGame 3 (at LAD):Friday Mike Moustakas Jersey , Oct. 26 at 8:09 p.m. ET on FoxGame 4 (at LAD):Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8:09 p.m. ET on Fox*Game 5 (at LAD):Sunday, Oct. 28 at 8:15 p.m. ET on Fox*Game 6 (at BOS):Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 8:09 p.m. ET on Fox*Game 7 (at BOS):Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 8:09 p.m. ET on Fox*If necessaryAll games can be live-streamed on Fox Sports Go.Series OutlookClayton KershawKevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesThe Red Sox finished the regular season ranked first in the majors in team batting average (.268), OPS (.792) and runs scored (876), and they've continued to light up the scoreboard this postseason with 56 runs in nine games.While Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez both turned in MVP-caliber seasons, the lineup is dangerous top-to-bottom, and it's been guys like Brock Holt (5-for-15, 3 XBH, 6 RBI) and Rafael Devers (7-for-20, 1 HR, 7 RBI) who have come up big in October.That said, as good as the offense has been, it's the starting pitching that looks like the biggest X-factor.Chris SaleElsa/Getty ImagesThere were some legitimate questions when the playoffs began whether the starting staff was good enough behind ace Chris Sale.However, with Nathan Eovaldi turning in two excellent starts so far this postseason and David Price finally exorcizing his October demons with six scoreless innings in Game 5 of the ALCS, the rotation is suddenly looking like a strength.Closing out games has been an adventure for Craig Kimbrel of late. He allowed four hits Salvador Perez Jersey , four walks and two earned runs in four innings in the ALCS, but he was still able to convert all three of his save chances. He'll need to be on his game as well against a deep Dodgers lineup.Speaking of that Dodgers lineup, manager Dave Roberts continues to employ a dramatic platoon strategy.All 13 position players on the postseason roster have started at least one game during the playoffs, and the ability of guys like Max Muncy (1B, 2B), Cody Bellinger (1B, CF), Chris Taylor (2B, LF, CF) and Kike Hernandez (2B, CF, RF) to play multiple positions affords Roberts a ton of flexibility.Cody BellingerStacy Revere/Getty ImagesThe Dodgers led the NL in both runs scored (804) and ERA (3.38) during the regular season, so the pitching has been just as impressive as the well-balanced lineup.After getting knocked around in Game 1 of the NLCS, ace Clayton Kershaw threw a gem in Game 5 (7.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 9 K) and then closed out Game 7 with a scoreless inning.He's backed by Hyun-Jin Ryu http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-moss-jersey , Walker Buehler and Rich Hill in a rotation that has been dominant down the stretch, and those guys pitching deep into games will be key for the Dodgers.The trio of Ryan Madson (6 G, 6.1 IP, 6 H, 1 ER), Pedro Baez (6 G, 6.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER) and Kenley Jansen (6 G, 6.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER) has been excellent closing out games, while Scott Alexander and Dylan Floro have both tallied six scoreless appearances in more of a specialist role.These two teams are both pitching well and both capable of putting a crooked number on the scoreboard, so it should be a hard-fought series.
