The Dodgers are back home at Dodger Stadium, trying to turn the National League Championship Series in their favor. Walker Buehler is on the mound for Los Angeles in Game 3.

Charlie Morton starts for the Braves, his fourth postseason start against the Dodgers in the last five years, with three different teams. The Dodgers scored five runs off Morton in Game 3 of last year’s World Series, one of only three times in 15 career postseason games (14 starts) that Morton allowed more than two runs.

Tuesday is Joc Pederson’s 17th postseason start at Dodger Stadium, starting in right field for the third straight game in this series. In 23 total postseason games at Chavez Ravine, Pederson is hitting .235/.297/.529 with five home runs and five doubles.
