The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers will meet for the final time in a pivotal Game 7 of the NLCS Sunday night. The Dodgers announced that right-hander Dustin May will get the start in a somewhat surprise move. May started Game 5 and through 55 pitches over two innings. He will not likely pitch more than one or two Sunday night before giving way to Tony Gonsolin or Julio Urias. Atlanta will go with rookie right-hander Ian Anderson.
Brian Snitker’s lineup for Game 7 has no changes.
Chris Taylor returns to the lineup for Los Angeles after sitting out Game 6. Taylor tweaked his ankle late in Game 5 but Dave Roberts said that he was available for Game 6 but did not make an appearance. Joc Pederson will get the start against the right hander as the DH and will be hitting eighth.
