Steven Matz may have only six games in the major leagues on his resume, but he does have championship-clinching experience. In fact, Matz started his team’s clincher each of the last two postseasons in the minors. He took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in Double-A Binghamton's Eastern League championship clincher in 2014. Matz opposes Clayton Kershaw in Game 4 on Tuesday night at Citi Field. Kershaw will make his third career postseason start on three days’ rest. He went 0-1 with a 2.24 ERA in the previous two, while throwing 102 and 91 pitches. He went six innings each time.

Here is the AccuWeather forecast for Game 4 of the NLDS between the Mets and Dodgers on Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. at Citi Field: There will be some showers in the area this afternoon through 7 p.m. These will be light and most likely will not impact pregame activities. If showers linger through 8-9 p.m., they are not expected to be heavy enough to cause a delay. The wind during the game will blow out toward right field at 7-14 mph. The temperature at first pitch will be a mild 66 degrees, then fall only slightly to 63 by the end of the game.
