NLDS Game 1 lineup: Familiar names in Dodgers lineup

The Dodgers will start the same eight players from the Wild Card game

MLB: NLDS-Workouts D. Ross Cameron-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers are going with the same exact eight players they had in their starting lineup from the Wild Card game. The only difference is that some of the spots in the lineup are switched.

On Wednesday, AJ Pollock hit sixth and was followed by Matt Beaty and Cody Bellinger at seventh and eighth, respectively. Tonight, Pollock drops down to eighth and Beaty and Bellinger each move up a spot.

Dodgers lineup

  1. Mookie Betts - RF
  2. Corey Seager - SS
  3. Trea Turner - 2B
  4. Justin Turner - 3B
  5. Will Smith - C
  6. Matt Beaty - 1B
  7. Cody Bellinger - CF
  8. AJ Pollock - LF
  9. Walker Buehler - P

Although he hit the game-winning home run the other day, Chris Taylor isn’t in the starting lineup yet again. He’ll likely find himself in the game at a later point, likely coming in to replace Pollock in left field.

Giants lineup

  1. Tommy La Stella - 2B
  2. Wilmer Flores - 1B
  3. Brandon Crawford - SS
  4. Buster Posey - C
  5. LaMonte Wade Jr. - RF
  6. Kris Bryant - LF
  7. Mike Yastrzemski - CF
  8. Evan Longoria - 3B
  9. Logan Webb - P
