The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers return to action on Tuesday, facing off for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. ET at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, and the game will air on FS1.

There are two significant injuries shaking up both rosters in Game 2. The Dodgers scratched starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw Tuesday morning due to back spasms and will start Tony Gonsolin in his place.
