Dodgers vs. Braves NLDS Game 3 starting lineups: both teams same as games 1 and 2

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Dodgers and Braves use same lineup as they had in first two games, only fourth time all season that the Dodgers have used same first 8 batters for 3 or more consecutive games.

It is no secret that the Dodgers had their share of injuries and it seemed there was always a different lineup out there, today marks only the third time the Dodgers have had the same batting order for the eight batters for three games and they only had one starting eight in the same order for four games.  The Braves are also using the same first eight starting order as they had in Games 1 and 2.

"I feel pretty good about [the lineup]. I don't feel like there are a whole lot of changes we could make," Mattingly said on Saturday. "We still like Yasiel back there in the middle. We've been able to be dangerous through the middle of our order, it balances us, so we're pretty much going to be rolling with that."
