Game 3 is a pivotal point in the 2018 NLCS.The Los Angeles Dodgers return home with a wave of momentum following a Game 2 win at Miller Park Justin Smoak Jersey , while the Milwaukee Brewers are trying to stop their opponent from running away with the series.The good news for the Brewers is they'll have top reliever Josh Hader available after two days of rest, but manager Craig Counsell needs to have more faith in his starting pitchers in order to keep Hader and the rest of the relievers fresh for the three games at Dodger Stadium.The Dodgers will once again try to mash their way to victory at the plate, and they're hoping their young phenom on the mound can create separation in the series with two more home games coming up.NLCS Game 3 TV ScheduleStart Time:7:39 p.m. ETTV:FS1Live Stream:Fox Sports appTicket Info:All available tickets for Game 3 can be found on StubHub.Odds (via OddsShark):Milwaukee (+140; Bet $100 to win $140); Los Angeles (-165; Bet $165 to win $100) Dodgers Banking On BuehlerWalker Buehler will attempt to rebound from a losing outing in his first-career postseason start Monday, as he toes the rubber for Game 3 of the NLCS.In his NLDS start against the Atlanta Braves, the 24-year-oldgave up five earned runs over five innings against a team clawing for its postseason life.Although he was defeated by the young Braves, Buehler struck out seven batters and conceded only two hits.Marcio Jose Sanchez/Associated PressThose two stats combined with the numbers Buehler put up at the end of the regular season are reasons for the Dodgers to believe he'll put together a gem of a performance Monday night.In his final four regular-season outings, he gave up two earned runs over 26.2 innings, with two of those performances coming against a playoff team in the Colorado Rockies.In 16 career appearances at Dodger Stadium, 12 of which have been starts http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-marco-estrada-jersey , Buehler has struck out 88 batters and recorded an ERA of 2.31.With a raucous home crowd behind him, he will be able to toss at least six strong innings on the mound before making way for the Dodgers bullpen.If Buehler is able to limit the amount of Milwaukee base runners, the Dodgers' lineup will only have to string together a few clutch hits to open up an advantage.If everything goes to plan for the Dodgers, Buehler will be followed up by a combination of Ryan Madson, Alex Wood and Kenta Maeda before Kenley Jansen slams the door shut on the Brewers for the second consecutive game. How Much Trust Does Counsell Have in Chacin?Counsell had a quick trigger to go to his bullpen in the first two games of the series, but he needs to have a little more patience with Jhoulys Chacin in Game 3.The Milwaukee manager opted to trust his relievers in Game 1, as he pulled Gio Gonzalez after two innings.By going that route, Counsell stretched out Hader and took the left-hander out of Game 2 because he went three innings in the opener.In Game 2, he removed Wade Miley with two outs in the sixth inning with his starter at 74 pitches.If Chacin puts together a similar performance to the one Miley produced Saturday Aaron Sanchez Jersey , the manager needs to show more faith in his starter, which would in turn rest parts of his heavily used bullpen.Aaron Gash/Associated PressThe ideal plan for the Brewers is for Chacin to last six innings, which would set Hader up for a manageable two-inning role to get to closer Corey Knebel.Chacin, who started his career with the Rockies, is 5-5 all-time at Dodger Stadium with a 4.96 ERA, and he has given up 34 earned runs over 61.2 innings in Los Angeles.The 30-year-old didn't fare well in his last trip to Dodger Stadium, as he conceded eight earned runs, walked four batters and struck out three hitters in 4.1 innings in a 21-5 defeat on August 2.Since that game, Chacin hasn't given up more than three earned runs in a start Kevin Pillar Jersey , including the five shutout innings he produced in Game 2 of the NLDS.If the Brewers get the Chacin they've seen since the blowout loss to the Dodgers, Counsell shouldn't have to make too many difficult decisions in the first five innings.However, if the Dodgers get to Chacin once again, the Brewers will be stuck in a situation that forces them to use more bullpen arms than expected at the start of a three-day stretch of contests in Los Angeles.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90.Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference. Elsa/Getty ImagesNew York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, the team announced Wednesday.The Yankees added the procedure "went as expected."The team confirmed last weekGregorius would need to go under the knife to repair a tear in hisright ulnar collateral ligament.Yankees manager Aaron Booneindicatedthe 28-year-old is at least a doubt to start the 2019 regular season."We're optimistic that he'll be back at some point during the season," Boone said. "I don't want to speculate too much on when.We think there's a realistic chance he plays the bulk of the season with us."Yankees general manager Brian Cashman added that Gregorius' return date "all depends on how things play out."The announcement put a damper on what was a career year for Gregorius. He set personal bests in home runs (27), on-base percentage (.335) and slugging percentage (.494). His 4.6 WAR ranked eighth among shortstops, perFanGraphs.For some http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-russell-martin-jersey , Gregorius' elbow injury added further incentive for the Yankees to sign Manny Machado, who's a free agent this winer. MLB.com'sAnthony Castrovincemade some arguments against the move, citing the likely length of Machado's contract鈥攑otentially 10 years or more鈥攁nd New York's need for starting pitching above a middle infielder.The Yankees already had some motivation to spend big in free agency after a disappointing playoff exit in the American League Division Series. Now that Gregorius is officially on the road to recovery, the team will have another reason to evaluate all of its options in the free-agent market.
