The NLCS continues, and the ALCS resumes in Houston.
Although the Brewers shut out the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS, L.A. did make a run at the game in the ninth inning, loading the bases and bringing the tying run to the plate.
The Dodgers are giving Austin Barnes a start at catcher tonight:

L.A.’s regular catcher, Yasmani Grandal, is having a miserable postseason. He’s 3-for-22 overall with 10 strikeouts (one of those with the bases loaded in that ninth inning Monday), plus has had three passed balls in the NLCS.
Nathan Eovaldi pitched very well in his first-ever postseason game in the ALDS against the Yankees (seven innings, one run), while Dallas Keuchel will be making his ninth postseason start.
Here are the lineups for the afternoon game.
