The Dodgers will send Clayton Kershaw to the mound and the Cardinals counter with Shelby Miller.

The Dodgers and Cardinals will begin their third game at 6:07 PM PT. It will be left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu against right-hander John Lackey.

As for Game 4, it would begin either at 2:07 PT or 5:37 PT — with the deciding factor being if the San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals series has concluded. If it has, Game 4 is between the Dodgers and Cardinals would start at 5:37 PT.

If necessary, Game 5 would be played in Los Angeles on Oct. 9 at 5:37 PT or 6:07 PT.

Regardless of the varying combination of start times, Game 3, Game 4 and, if needed, Game 5 will all be broadcast on FOX Sports 1. As of now, Dan Haren is scheduled to start Game 4 for the Dodgers and Shelby Miller will get the call for St. Louis.
