The Great Carlos Santana Outfield Experiment of 2016 has come to an end, at least for Game 4 of the World Series. With the Indians slated to face right-hander John Lackey, Terry Francona has stationed Santana at first base over Mike Napoli, while Rajai Davis is set to man left field.

The Cubs, meanwhile, have elected Jason Heyward as their starting right fielder. Heyward’s last postseason start came during Game 5 of the Championship Series, though he’s made a handful of pinch-hit appearances since then. While his left-handed bat could be useful against Corey Kluber, he hasn’t registered a hit for the Cubs in two weeks, when he went 1-for-3 against the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS.

The game is scheduled to begin at 8 PM EDT; lineups are below.
