LOS ANGELES — Now that the Wild Card round is over and the Division Series teams are set, MLB released start times for the remainder of the first round.

The Dodgers’ first home game of the series against the Nationals, Game 3 on Monday at Dodger Stadium, will start at 1:08 p.m. PT if there are three or four games on that day, or 3:08 p.m. if both ALDS end with sweeps.

Game 4, if necessary, will be played at 5:08 p.m. on Tuesday if the Cubs-Giants NLDS ends in a sweep, or 2:05 p.m. otherwise.

Should the series return to Washington D.C. for Game 5, that would start at 5:08 p.m. if it is the only game that day, or 2:05 p.m. should the Cubs and Giants also get pushed to a fifth game.

Game 3 will be televised by MLB Network, with Fox Sports 1 broadcasting the other four games.
