World Series Game 5 lineups: Enrique Hernandez batting cleanup for Dodgers

Leave a comment

The Astros, once again, are leaving their lineup unchanged for Game 5 of the World Series. The Dodgers have made a couple of alterations, including moving Enrique Hernandez — who hit three home runs in Game 5 of the NLCS — into the cleanup spot. Logan Forsythe is also at third base while Justin Turner will DH. Turner took a ground ball off of his thigh in Game 4, so that may be the reason behind that change.

The game starts at 8 PM ET at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke continued to swing a good stick, belting his third homer of the season on Monday night against the Dodgers. With the game tied 3-3 in the second inning, Greinke lined a 1-1 Clayton Kershaw fastball over the fence in left field for a solo homer.

Greinke is the third pitcher to homer off of Kershaw, joining Madison Bumgarner and Tyson Ross. He’s No. 4 if you count Brandon Woodruff‘s home run in Game 1 of the NLCS last year. Greinke now has three homers on the season, setting a career-high. He’s batting .314/.351/.686 with six RBI, seven runs scored, and a stolen base along with the trio of dingers. Absurd numbers from a pitcher.
