UPDATE (Oct. 11, p.m. PT): With the Toronto Blue Jays defeating the Texas Rangers in Game 3 of their American League Division Series to force a Game 4 on Monday, first pitch of Game 3 of the National League Division Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets will be at 5:37 p.m. PT on Monday.

As all other NL playoff games, it will be broadcast live on TBS.


With the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets set to square off at Dodger Stadium for Games 1 and 2 of the 2015 National League Division Series, some clarity for when the series moves to Citi Field was provided Thursday.

If there are four postseason games being played on Monday, Oct. 12, which would include Game 4 between the Kansas City Royals and Houston Astros, and Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers, then first pitch between the Dodgers and Mets for Game 3 will be 5:37 p.m. PT.

However, if there are only three postseason games to be played Monday, Game 3 at Citi Field will begin at 5:07 p.m. PT. Should the NLDS matchup between the Dodgers and Mets reach a Game 4 and/or Game 5, both will begin at 5:07 p.m. PT.

If necessary, Game 4 will be played on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at Citi Field. Should the series reach a winner-take-all elimination game, the scene shifts back to Dodger Stadium for Game 5 on Thursday, Oct. 15.

Included below are the pitching probables.

Game 1: Jacob deGrom vs. Clayton Kershaw
Game 2: Noah Syndergaard vs. Zack Greinke
Game 3: Brett Anderson vs. Matt Harvey
Game 4*: TBD vs. Steven Matz
Game 5*: TBD vs. TBD
