Coming into the 2013 NLCS, things couldn’t have aligned better for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Come Game 3, they couldn’t have aligned worse. Not only are the Dodgers down 0-2 in the series, they’ve already spent both Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw through the series’ first two contests while St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright takes the hill in Game 3.

For the Dodgers, both Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier are ‘game-time’ calls in the truest of fashions, both wanting to work out prior to the game to test their ability to play.

Below are your tentative (highly stressed) lineups for NLCS Game 3:

St. Louis Cardinals:

1. Matt Carpenter (L) 2B
2. Carlos Beltran (S) RF
3. Matt Holliday (R) LF
4. Yadier Molina (R) C
5. David Freese (R) 3B
6. Matt Adams (L) 1B
7. Jon Jay (L) CF
8. Pete Kozma (R) SS
9. Adam Wainwright (R) P

Los Angeles Dodgers:

1. Carl Crawford (L) LF
2. Mark Ellis (R) 2B
3. Hanley Ramirez (R) SS
4. Adrian Gonzalez (L) 1B
5. Andre Ethier (L) CF
6. Yasiel Puig (R) RF
7. Juan Uribe (R) 3B
8. A.J. Ellis (R) C
9. Hyun-Jin Ryu (R) P
