Well, it’s Game 5. If the Dodgers win, they get to travel to Atlanta one more time. If they lose, it’s time to start planning their vacation. Here’s the lineup Dave Roberts selected for tonight.

With Justin Turner officially done for the postseason, Chris Taylor will get the start at third base. Cody Bellinger will take over in center field after spending a number of games at first base. With left-hander Max Fried on the mound, the Dodgers will have Albert Pujols at first base and AJ Pollock in left field.

Aside from that, Roberts opted to flip Trea Turner and Corey Seager in the lineup yet again. Turner will be hitting second tonight, with Seager hitting third.
