NLDS Game 2 lineup: Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves


Coming into Game 1, the Los Angeles Dodgers knew that they’d have pitching support from Clayton Kershaw, however, considering the missing offensive cogs like Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, what to expect offensively was unknown.

Missing cogs or not, the Dodgers’ lineup didn’t skip a beat, putting up six runs on eleven hits including a home run from first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

Gonzo will be back in the Dodgers’ lineup today, which looks identical to the lineup who thrived in Game 1.

For Atlanta, who struggled (understandably) during the series’ opening game, they too will return the same lineup – this time hoping they can get a bit more production from the heart of their order as the top five hitters in the lineup combined to go 3 of 17 in Thursday night’s loss.

Here are the starting lineups for Game 2:

Los Angeles Dodgers:

1. Carl Crawford (L) LF
2. Mark Ellis (R) 2B
3. Hanley Ramirez (R) SS
4. Adrian Gonzalez (L) 1B
5. Yasiel Puig (R) RF
6. Juan Uribe (R) 3B
7. Skip Schumaker (L) CF
8. A.J. Ellis (R) C
9. Zack Greinke (R) P

Atlanta Braves:

1. Jason Heyward (L) CF
2. Justin Upton (R) RF
3. Freddie Freeman (L) 1B
4. Evan Gattis (R) LF
5. Brian McCann (L) C
6. Chris Johnson (R) 3B
8. Elliot Johnson (S) 2B
9. Mike Minor (R) P
