For the first time since 2014, Justin Turner wasn’t in a Dodgers postseason lineup on Sunday. Well, it’s time for him to start a new streak, as he’s back in the lineup for Tuesday.

Turner is back at third base and is hitting fifth in LA’s lineup. Aside from that, there are not really any notable changes. Cody Bellinger is back in the lineup and is at first base. Gavin Lux takes over in center field, with Chris Taylor sliding over to left field.

AJ Pollock will be on the bench, as his rough postseason continues for him. He’s 4-for-22 this postseason with nine strikeouts and is 1-for-8 in the NLCS.

The Braves will be rolling out the exact same lineup for the third straight game. Hey, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it I guess.
