Here are the lineups for Game 4 of the NLCS between the Brewers and Dodgers, slated for a 9:09 PM ET start at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night.
Piña is back behind the dish after Erik Kratz started Games 2 and 3. Schoop, facing a lefty, will get his first start of the postseason after being inserted in the middle of the first two contests of the NLDS against the Rockies. All eyes will understandably be on MVP candidate Yelich, but Arcia has quietly been an offensive threat. He has hit safely in five of six playoff games thus far and has homered in three of them, including the last two games against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers put together their righty-heavy lineup against the lefty starter. Taylor, Freese, Dozier, Puig, and Barnes all move into the lineup. Barnes’ inclusion, however, has a lot to do with the poor performance of Yasmani Grandal in Game 3. Grandal allowed his third passed ball of the NLCS on Monday as well as a wild pitch. Additionally, Grandal hasn’t been bringing much with the bat. Manager Dave Roberts is hoping Barnes will help shake things up.
