The World Series resumes on Friday night at 8 PM at Minute Maid Park in Houston between the Dodgers and Astros. American League park, American League rules. Evan Gattis will DH for the Astros and Enrique Hernandez will do so for the Dodgers.

Here are the lineups.

Astros

CF George Springer
3B Alex Bregman
2B Jose Altuve
SS Carlos Correa
1B Yuli Gurriel
RF Josh Reddick
DH Evan Gattis
LF Marwin Gonzalez
C Brian McCann

SP Lance McCullers

Dodgers

CF Chris Taylor
SS Corey Seager
3B Justin Turner
1B Cody Bellinger
RF Yasiel Puig
2B Logan Forsythe
C Austin Barnes
DH Joc Pederson
LF Enrique Hernandez

SP Yu Darvish

It’s worth noting that Reddick has been moved up to the No. 6 spot in the Astros’ batting order. He went hitless through the first six games of the ALCS, a span of 23 plate appearances. However, he’s hit safely in each of his last three games — Game 7 of the ALCS and the first two games of the World Series. Manager A.J. Hinch may feel like Reddick has broken out of his slump.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts gives Joc Pederson another start after getting the nod in Game 2. He went 1-for-3 with a solo home run. This will mark only his third start for the Dodgers this postseason.

The Tigers and free agent catcher Austin Romine have agreed to a one-year contract, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports. WFAN’s Sweeny Murti specifies that the deal is for $4.1 million.

Romine, 31, has been in the league for eight seasons, all with the Yankees. Across 1,116 trips to the plate, he has hit .239/.281/.366. However, Romine is well-regarded for his defense and game-calling abilities.

Romine will slot in as the full-time catcher for the rebuilding Tigers. They’ll have Jake Rogers and Grayson Greiner behind him.
