With the Dodgers holding a 2-1 lead in the series, below are the lineups for Game 4 of the NLDS. First pitch is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. ET while the game will be broadcast on TBS…

Braves:
CF Jason Heyward

Dodgers:
LF Carl Crawford
2B Mark Ellis

Save for the starting pitchers, these are the same lineups both teams used in Game 3. The Dodgers, who pounded out 13 runs on 14 hits last night, will attempt to put the series to bed against Freddy Garcia. Meanwhile, the Braves will have to hope that they can get something going against Kershaw, who is pitching on short-rest for the first time in his career.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
