Dodgers-Braves lineups announced for tonight’s game

Gosh, I hope Don Mattingly filled out his lineup card properly or else he’ll have to answer to Brian McCann:

Dodgers:

Carl Crawford LF
Mark Ellis 2B
Hanley Ramirez SS
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Yasiel Puig RF
Juan Uribe 3B
Skip Schumaker CF
A.J. Ellis C
Clayton Kershaw P

Skip Schumaker in center, starting is not how the Dodgers would prefer it, but given that Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are hurt, that’s life.

Braves:

Jason Heyward CF
Justin Upton RF
Freddie Freeman 1B
Evan Gattis LF
Brian McCann C
Chris Johnson 3B
Andrelton Simmons SS
Eliot Johnson 2B
Kris Medlen P

The offense-first lineup, with Gattis in left and B.J. Upton sent out to go get everyone pizza or something and ordered to stay out unless and until the Braves have a lead in late innings in which he may be allowed to play some defense.

Play ball.
