Game 2 of the NLCS sees the Atlanta Braves host the Los Angeles Dodgers after Atlanta won a tight Game 1 last night. Opening pitch is set for 7:38 p.m. and will air on TBS from Truist Park on TBS.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves Game 2 Predictions

Dave Roberts won’t be able to use Corey Knebel as an opener in Game 2. Knebel threw the first inning against the San Francisco Giants on Thursday and did the same thing against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday. However, he will have the most dominant pitcher left in the playoffs in Max Scherzer, and that should be enough for the Dodgers to even the series on Sunday.

<p.The Dodgers were unable to steal a win from the Braves in Game 1. Roberts used eight different relievers in order to set his rotation, and they largely pitched well. However, Los Angeles was unable to do much at the plate in a 3-2 loss. They will be more productive at the plate in Game 2 against Ian Anderson.

Dodgers 4, Braves 2
