Craig Counsell and Dave Roberts have announced their lineups for tonight’s NLCS opener. With lefties on the mound in the form of Clayton Kershaw and Gio Gonzalez, each manager has gone with his “hey, we’re facing a lefty” lineup.

For the Brewers that means that Hernan Perez starts at second base and Travis Shaw rides pine and the only lefties — Christian Yelich and Mike Moustakas — are a couple of guys who would be in against anyones. For the Dodgers that means all righties except Cody Bellinger and Kershaw himself, with ChrisT aylor, Matt Kemp and David Freese starting and Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson and Max Muncy on the bench. Not that we won’t see all of those guys at some point tonight, I reckon.
