If we’re going to see the latest episode of Joctober tonight, it’ll have to happen off the bench.

The lineups for Game 3 of the 2021 World Series are out and it’s time to go right on ahead and take a look at them ahead of the first pitch.

Here’s how the Braves will be looking as they get set to hit the baseball tonight:

We’re back in the National League, which means that there’s a “P” beside the ninth spot in the lineup. Someone’s going to be the odd man out without a DH and that ended up being Joc Pederson. Jorge Soler is getting the start in right field and he’ll be batting fifth in the order. All things told, I do like this lineup.

Meanwhile, here’s how Houston will be looking for tonight’s game:

You can put a pitcher in this lineup and it’s still ridiculously deep. Michael Brantley has moved to right field, Kyle Tucker is in center field, and Yordan Alvarez will be putting on a glove and playing left field in this one. A very, very deep lineup, indeed.
