The San Francisco Giants and the Cincinnati Reds will face off in Game 3 of their National League Division Series playoff on Tuesday. The game will get underway at 5.37 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on TBS, or alternatively can be watched online through live stream.
The Reds have taken a commanding lead in the series winning Game 1 by a score of 5-2, and then trouncing the Giants in Game 2 by 9-0.
Cincinnati will be looking to close out the series with a whitewash win, and claim the clean sweep in front of their home fans tonight.
Over the two games they have beaten down the Giants convincingly by 14-2 and there is no reason to think anything will change to tonight as they take home field advantage.
Homer Bailey will take the mound for the Reds, after finishing the regular season in good form, going 3-1 with a 1.85 ERA in September and October.
The Giants have a long way to go to come back, and will have to change up something if they are to have any chance. Ryan Vogelsong will try to lead the Giants' fight against elimination and will be hoping first of all to ensure the series goes on to Game 4. He ended the season well, allowing just one earned run in his last three starts.
Neither of those two pitchers have started in the postseason, and for the Giants that may be good news, as Vogelsong can come in with a fresh approach.
