jors Saturday:BRYCE CHECKBryce Harper was a hit on opening day in Philadelphia Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , getting plenty of applause in those gaudy green Phanatic spikes . But he’s still hitless, something he’ll try to change when the Phillies continue a series against Atlanta. Harper was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts Thursday, though his intentional walk set up Rhys Hoskins’ seventh-inning grand slam in a 10-4 victory. The Braves’ Bryse Wilson is set to oppose Philly’s Nick Pivetta.YU AGAIN?Chicago Cubs righty Yu Darvish makes his season debut after an injury-shortened year — he’ll face some former Rangers teammates when he starts at Texas. Darvish hasn’t pitched in the majors since last May 20, when elbow trouble sidelined him in his first season since signing a rich deal with the Cubs.Darvish made his big league debut with Texas in 2012 after playing seven pro seasons at home in Japan. He was 52-39 with a 3.42 ERA in 122 starts for the Rangers before they dealt the four-time All-Star to the Dodgers at the 2017 trade deadline.NEW BEGINNINGSJames Paxton is set to make his first start with the Yankees following an offseason trade from Seattle. Nicknamed The Big Maple, the Canadian left-hander has been slowed by injuries the past two seasons but pitched like an ace when healthy.He’ll face the Orioles, who will use starter-turned-reliever Nate Karns as the major league’s first relief opener of 2019. After losing 115 games last season, Baltimore and new manager Brandon Hyde are eager to experiment while they rebuild. The team only used an opener once last season under Buck Showalter, but it could be a regular occurrence going forward for the pitching-thin Orioles.THOR VS STRASNoah Syndergaard and Stephen Strasburg square off in another enticing pitching matchup in Washington. NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom of the Mets edged Cy Young runner-up Max Scherzer in New York’s 2-0 win opening day. The Mets and Nationals combined for 26 strikeouts in that game. Expect more punch outs with Syndergaard and Strasburg ranking among the sport’s hardest-throwing starters.IT’S ALWAYS SONNYReds righty Sonny Gray pitches against the Pirates hoping to get more comfortable in his new home than his previous one. Gray is seeking a return to form after a frustrating 2018 season with the Yankees. He had a 4.90 ERA and struggled especially in the Bronx, leading to an offseason trade to Cincinnati. First-year manager David Bell won his debut Thursday and showed a willingness to try new ideas, like using relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen as a defensive replacement in center field. 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, 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 http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-moore-jersey , 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, 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 Prince Fielder Jersey , 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, 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 Adrian Beltre Jersey , 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, 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.
