The Braves can get a second straight series win with a win on Thursday.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It's a noon start after the Braves and Dodgers played a ten-inning ballgame last night, so the lineups for both teams could be chock-full of bench players on Thursday.

The Braves will try their hand against Clayton Kershaw, as they try to pick up their second consecutive series win (did anybody think we'd be saying that a few days ago?).

Take to the game thread to teach the Braves' hitters how to hit Kershaw, since none of them have had much success against him. Drew Stubbs is 4-for-31 with 16 strikeouts against him. Although, Nick Markakis is 2-for-3 off the lefty.

Here are today's lineups:
