Muncy is out of the lineup for Game 2 of the World Series against Boston on Wednesday. Muncy will begin Wednesday's game on the bench as David Freese draws another start at first base with lefty David Price on the rubber for the Red Sox. Look for Muncy to join the fray once Price's day has come to a close.
Muncy is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the World Series against the Red Sox on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. Muncy will hit the bench for Game 1 as manager Dave Roberts stacks right-handed hitters against lefty Chris Sale. In his place, David Freese will start at first base and hit third.
Muncy is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Brewers on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. As has been the case all postseason, Muncy will give way to David Freese at first base with a southpaw (Gio Gonzalez) starting for the Brewers. Muncy is 1-for-6 with two walks and two runs scored through the first three games of the series.
Muncy remains on the bench for Game 2 of the NLCS against the Brewers on Saturday. The Brewers will start their second straight lefty in Wade Miley, so David Freese will again start at first base. Game 1's starter, Gio Gonzalez, pitched just two innings before the Brewers switched to righty Brandon Woodruff, leading to Muncy pinch hitting in the fourth inning and playing the rest of the game. A similar situation could take place again Saturday.
Muncy won't be included in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the NLCS against Milwaukee on Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. With left-hander Gio Gonzalaz slated to toe the rubber for the Brewers in Game 1, manager Dave Roberts will elect to go with David Freese at first base. Milwaukee is expected to roll out lefty Wade Miley in Game 2, so it's possible Muncy could come off the bench for the first two ballgames of the series.
