LOS ANGELES — We have reached the end of the line for the 2017 baseball season, with one of the greatest spectacles in sports -- Game 7 of the World Series. Here are the final starting lineups of the year.
We have the usual suspects starting for the Dodgers, including Joc Pederson in left field, looking to extend his World Series-record streak of five straight games with an extra-base hit.
Game 7 lineups
|C||McCann (L)||LF||Pederson (L)|
Austin Barnes starts at catcher for the seventh time in seven games in this World Series, the eighth straight time overall, and the 13th time in 15 games this postseason. He was 0-for-2 against Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. in Game 3 in Houston.
Logan Forsythe starts at second base, his 11th start this postseason. He is hitting .294/.429/.353 this postseason.
Forsythe had a single in two at-bats against McCullers in Game 3.
The Astros have used the same starting eight position players for every game of the World Series.
McCullers, at 24 years, 30 days old, is the 11th-youngest pitcher to start Game 7 of the World Series, and the youngest since John Lackey started for the Angels at 24 years, four days old in Game 7 in 2002.
