LOS ANGELES (AP)  — Walker Buehler is set to start on three days’ rest for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of their NL Division Series against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday.

Buehler is opposed by right-hander Anthony DeSclafani, making his first appearance this postseason. DeSclafani had a 3.17 ERA in 31 starts of the best season of his seven-year career.

The Giants lead the best-of-five series and could eliminate the defending World Series champions with a victory at Dodger Stadium. The game starts at 6:07 p.m. Tuesday.
