NLCS Game 2 lineup: Los Angeles Dodgers at St. Louis Cardinals


As a baseball fan, you couldn’t have asked for a better NLCS Game 1 between the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals. As a fan of either team, you’re still probably a bit nauseated from the thirteen innings of drama.

Hopefully you have some extra medication laying around because the two teams are back at it, just hours after Game 1 came to a thrilling conclusion.

Game 2 will be without Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, who has been replaced in the starting lineup by Skip Schumaker. Ethier reported slight soreness after last night’s extra long affair, so the Dodgers will use him in a pinch hitting/substitution role instead. Shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who is penciled into the early lineup, remains a game time call and could be removed before first pitch.

EDIT: Hanley Ramriez has been scratched from the starting lineup.
