The 2016 National League Championship Series shifts to Los Angeles on Tuesday night for Game 3.

The series is tied 1 game apiece after Clayton Kershaw blanked the Chicago Cubs over 7 innings on Sunday in a 1-0 victory. Chicago claimed Game 1 8-4 on Saturday.

On Tuesday, Jake Arrieta is expected to start for the Cubs, while Rich Hill takes the hill for L.A.

Arrieta was 18-8 with a 3.10 ERA in the regular season. Hill was 12-5 with a 2.12 ERA.

Arrieta has pitched once in the 2016 postseason, getting a no decision in Game 3 of the divisional series against the Giants, a contest San Francisco won 6-5 in 13 innings on October 10. The right-hander allowed 2 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings. He struck out 5 and walked 1. The 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner faced the Dodgers once this season, blanking them over 7 innings. He allowed 2 hits and walked 8. He didn’t fare in the decision, though. That game was at Wrigley Field.

The left-handed Hill appeared in two games in the LDS against the Nationals, giving up 5 runs on 9 hits over 7 innings. He has a 13 to 6 strikeout to walk ratio in the playoffs. Hill didn’t face the Cubs in 2016 and was 4-4 with a 2.42 ERA at home.

Game 3 of the NLCS will be televised by FOX Sports 1 (FS1) beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Game 4 and 5 of the series will also be played in Los Angeles. They are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.
