After losing last night, Dave Roberts opted to switch things up in the starting lineup for Saturday.

For the first time this postseason, Chris Taylor will be in the starting lineup and in center field. Following last night’s game, Roberts said he would have Taylor in the lineup. With him now in center field, Cody Bellinger will slide over to first base.

Matt Beaty started at first base the first two games. The other day, Roberts said that Bellinger would start both games in San Francisco in center because of how deep the outfield is. As you can see though, the situation has caused him to switch some things up.
