Cubs-Dodgers NLCS Game 3 lineups: Jason Heyward moves to bench
The Cubs and Dodgers' NLCS is tied 1-1 heading into Game 3
LOS ANGELES -- With the series knotted at one game apiece, the NLCS between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers shifts to Dodger Stadium for Games 3-5. For Game 3, let's quickly check in on the weather, shall we?
Yeah, it's 90 with no clouds in the sky and basically no wind. As the song goes, I love L.A.
As for the lineups, let's grab a look.
2. Kris Bryant , 3B
3. Ben Zobrist , LF
4. Anthony Rizzo , 1B
5. Javier Baez , 2B
6. Jorge Soler , RF
7. Addison Russell , SS
8. Miguel Montero , C
9. Jake Arrieta , RHP
There are definitely some substantive changes here. With a lefty on the hill, manager Joe Maddon has benched Jason Heyward in favor of Soler while he's flipped Zobrist and Rizzo, moved Baez up to the five-hole and moved Russell from five to seven. Rizzo and Russell in particular have struggled this postseason.
2. Corey Seager , SS
3. Justin Turner , 3B
4. Adrian Gonzalez , 1B
5. Josh Reddick , RF
6. Joc Pederson , CF
7. Yasmani Grandal , C
8. Andrew Toles , LF
9. Rich Hill , LHP
Exactly what you'd expect from Dave Roberts against a right-hander.
Game 3 is scheduled for 8:08 p.m. ET, which, of course, is 5:08 local time here in SoCal.
