As you can see, Ramirez is in his familiar third spot for the Dodgers, but you should consider him a game-time decision. He's of course still quite limited after a Kelly fastball in Game 1 fractured one of his ribs, and Ramirez was also forced to leave Game 4 after five innings.
On the Cardinals' side of things, Freese (calf) will give it a go in Game 5 even though he, like Ramirez, was forced out of Game 4.
