The Yankees have been eliminated, but that doesn’t mean that baseball is over. The League Championship Series round begins tonight, as the Brewers will host the Dodgers in game one of the NLCS. Clayton Kershaw, who shut out the Braves over eight innings in his last start, will get the ball for Los Angeles, while fellow lefty Gio Gonzalez will start for Milwaukee.

It’s something of a series of contrasting styles, as the Dodgers have a cavalcade of strong, experienced starters to throw at the Brewers, while Milwaukee will try to bullpen their way through the series, as they did in the NLDS versus the Rockies. It should make for an interesting matchup.

The game starts at 8:05 EST and can be seen on Fox Sports 1, and can be streamed on Fox Sports Go.
