The Dodgers are switching things up in the lineup again, as Gavin Lux will be in the starting lineup for the first time this postseason.

Lux will be hitting sixth in the lineup and will be in center field. With Lux in center field, Cody Bellinger will play first base. AJ Pollock isn’t in the lineup for the first time this postseason, as Chris Taylor will be in left field.

Meanwhile, Corey Seager and Trea Turner flip spots again, with Seager hitting second and Turner hitting third. Last night saw Turner in the No. 2 spot and Seager in the No. 3 spot. Another notable move is Will Smith sliding up to the cleanup spot after hitting eighth yesterday.
