LEADING OFF: Dodgers vs Braves NLCS rematch, Red Sox-Yanks

Dansby Swanson looks to continue his tear at the plate when the Braves host the Dodgers, their first meeting since Los Angeles rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to beat Atlanta in last year’s NLCS. Swanson has five home runs during a 12-game hitting streak. Ian Anderson pitches for Atlanta against Julio Urías, who closed out a 4-3 victory in Game 7 of the 2020 NLCS with three hitless innings for his second win of the series. Meanwhile, the Yankees host Boston in the first game this season between the longtime rivals, and Reds right-hander Luis Castillo tries for his first win in almost two months.
