MLB Playoffs: Possible Dodgers lineup for Wild Card game

The Los Angeles Dodgers gave everything they had in the race for the National League West pennant, but despite everything it was not enough, since they lost it by a single game difference to their rivals San Francisco Giants, who won it for the first time since 2012 and cut Blues’ streak of 8 consecutive divisional titles. Now, the still monarchs of MLB will have to fight a life and death duel against the St. Louis Cardinals in the game for the National League Wild Card.

Manager Dave Roberts would have to go all out with his best available lineup to face perhaps the most fiery team in all of Major Leagues like the Cardinals, who have won 20 of their last 22 regular-season games. Max Muncy’s injury loss would be the most noticeable in the Californian ninth and perhaps Roberts would have to improvise a bit.

The probable lineup in the absence of Muncy at first base would be the following with Cody Bellinger resuming the initial:

C- Will Smith

1 B– Cody Bellinger

2B- Trea turner

3B- Justin turner

H.H- Corey seager

CF- AJ Pollock

LF- Chris taylor

RF- Mookie betts

P- Max scherzer

What lineup will Dave Roberts end up using against the Cardinals?

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and am going for my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils, and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
