8 Comments

Here are the lineups for Game 3 of the Dodgers-Cardinals series in St. Louis:

Dodgers:
2B Dee Gordon
CF Yasiel Puig
1B Adrian Gonzalez
RF Matt Kemp
SS Hanley Ramirez
LF Carl Crawford
3B Juan Uribe
C A.J. Ellis
SP Hyun-Jin Ryu

Don Mattingly sticks with his usual lineup.

Cardinals:
3B Matt Carpenter
RF Randal Grichuk
LF Matt Holliday
SS Jhonny Peralta
1B Matt Adams
C Yadier Molina
CF Jon Jay
2B Kolten Wong
SP John Lackey

Against left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu this is a similar lineup to what the Cardinals used versus left-hander Clayton Kershaw in Game 1, except this time lefty-hitting rookie Kolten Wong is starting at second base instead of righty-hitting veteran Pete Kozma.

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers fainted at Kirby Yates‘ charity event last night.

Myers was admitted to a local hospital and underwent a series of tests, but all came back normal and he feels fine today. The team believes it may have been a matter of Myers being dehydrated and that he should available to play in tomorrow night’s game against the Dodgers.
