As noted in the video, a double and RBI came off the board for Posey, and Pablo Sandoval, who was supposed to be batting, was charged with an out.

As Larry Brown Sports notes, Posey was listed in the third spot on the lineup posted inside the clubhouse and on the scoreboard, but the two copies of the official lineup card that made it to home plate had him in the cleanup spot. Hence, the objections of Dodgers manager Don Mattingly were upheld.
