Game 6 lineups
|C||McCann (L)||LF||Pederson (L)|
Logan Forsythe starts at second base for the Dodgers on Tuesday, batting seventh. He replaces Chase Utley, who started Game 2 against Verlander. Forsythe is 4-for-13 with a double and three walks in this World Series, hitting .308/.438/.385 with three runs scored and three RBI. He has a .450 on-base percentage in 40 plate appearances this postseason.
Utley is 0-for-5 in the World Series and 0-for-14 with two walks and a hit by pitch this postseason. His last hit in the postseason game in Game 4 of the 2016 NLDS, and Utley is 0-for-29 in the playoffs since, with four walks and a hit by pitch.
Joc Pederson is in left field, entering Tuesday night with an extra-base hit in four straight games. Among Dodgers, only Ron Fairly has more games with an extra-base hit in a single World Series, with five in 1965 against Minnesota.
He homered against Justin Verlander in Game 2, one of four hits the Dodgers have in two games against the right-hander this season.
