LOS ANGELES -- After the shocking turn of events on Friday at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers will try to pull themselves off the mat for Game 2 of the NLDS against the Cardinals. Here is a summary of Saturday night.

After Tommy Lasorda threw out the first pitch before Game 1 on Friday, the team will turn to Maury Wills throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on Saturday.

Jeffrey Osborne is on tour in Lula, Mississippi, but I can only assume the Dodgers office Rolodex with Osborne-level talent was misplaced* because somebody named Tinashe is singing the national anthem.

Parking lot gates open at 3:30 p.m. PT on Saturday, with Dodger Stadium gates opening at 4 p.m. PT.

The Dodgers will take batting practice at 3:55 p.m., with the Cardinals taking BP at 4:50 p.m.

Game info

First pitch: 6:37 p.m. PT

TV: MLB Network; most of the same crew as the rest of the series, with Tom Verducci, Harold Reynolds and Ken Rosenthal. But for Saturday night, Bob Costas is on play-by-play for one of MLB Network's two playoff games (the network will also broadcast Nationals vs. Giants on Monday).

Local radio: 570 AM and the Dodgers radio network, with Vin Scully calling the first three and last three innings. Charley Steiner and Rick Monday will call innings four through six.

National radio: ESPN Radio, with Dan Shulman and Aaron Boone on the call
