NLCS, Game 3: Cardinals-Dodgers lineups

Oct 14, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT


Below are the starting lineups for Game 3 of the NLCS between the Cardinals and Dodgers. First pitch at Dodger Stadium is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on TBS. St. Louis currently leads the best-of-seven series 2-0.

2B Matt Carpenter
RF Carlos Beltran
LF Matt Holliday
C Yadier Molina
3B David Freese
1B Matt Adams
CF Jon Jay
SS Pete Kozma
SP Adam Wainwright

This is the same lineup the Cardinals used in their victory in Game 2 against Clayton Kershaw on Saturday. Mike Matheny isn’t making any changes with another left-hander on the mound for Los Angeles.

LF Carl Crawford
2B Mark Ellis
SS Hanley Ramirez
1B Adrian Gonzalez
CF Andre Ethier
RF Yasiel Puig
3B Juan Uribe
C A.J. Ellis
SP Hyun-Jin Ryu

As we mentioned earlier, Hanley Ramirez is in the lineup despite a fractured rib while Andre Ethier is back after missing Game 2 with a lingering ankle injury. Meanwhile, the struggling Yasiel Puig has been dropped down to the sixth spot in the order. As Pedro Moura of the Orange County Register points out, this is the first time that Puig has batted below fifth in the big leagues.

    Let’s get it done Cards! Gotta start getting some offensive production- there’s no way our pitchers can keep the LA bats at bay forever. BIRDS!!!

    Doesn’t really matter what the Dodgers lineup is because they are going down!

    @Albert Pujouls- how’s it feel watching your former team in the postseason the second year in a row? bahahaaha

      Puhols would answer but he’s busy with his $25 million.

    If they don’t get to Wainwright early, it’s good night. The Dodgers are too beat up. Wait till next year!

    Kemp and Ethier back 100% Beckett and Billingsley will be back. Puig will be a bit more disciplined at the plate thanks to McGwire.

    Unless they win tonight, then it’ll get interesting, but I’m not holding my breath.

      Through two the home plate ump is making Wainwright look unhittable. That called third strike on Puig was pathetic.

    A little melodramatic there, Anoesis…it was low, but not THAT low.

      Below his knees is too low, period, especially when it results in an out. And since when did a simple observation become “melodramatic?”

    Your uae of the word “pathetic”, brainiac. But funny how you don’t complain when Brian Wilson gets the same calls, isn’t it?
