The lineups for Game 2 of the NLDS are here and as far as the Braves are concerned, there aren’t too many changes. Indeed, the only change that the Braves have made is a bit of a predictable one, as they’ve swapped Kurt Suzuki in for Tyler Flowers.

Only two of the Braves in this lineup have more than 10 plate appearances (including the playoffs) against Clayton Kershaw. Freddie Freeman is 6-for-25 over 28 plate appearances with just one extra-base hit (a home run) and Ender Inciarte is 5-for-17 over 18 PAs with a triple to his credit.

Meanwhile, here’s how the Dodgers are lining up for tonight:

The Dodgers made a few changes on the bottom half of their lineup as Yasiel Puig, Yasmani Grandal and Enrique Hernandez did a bit of shuffling. Other than that, Anibal Sanchez will have to deal wit the same top of the lineup that haunted Mike Foltynewicz last night. We’ll see what happens tonight.

So, what do you all think?
