Dodgers Lineup

  1. RF Joc Pederson
  2. 2B Max Muncy
  3. 3B Justin Turner
  4. CF Cody Bellinger
  5. SS Corey Seager
  6. LF Matt Beaty
  7. 1B Edwin Rios
  8. C Russell Martin
  9. P Clayton Kershaw (2.77 ERA, 3.37 FIP, 25.4 K%, 32.8 Hard Hit% in 130.0 IP)

Notes: As if the Dodgers organization wasn’t already deep enough with quality bats, Rios is slashing .273/.429/.455 through 13 career games. He played his college ball at Florida International University...The “declining” Kershaw has been awfully consistent in 2019, giving them quality starts in 85% of his outings.

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Jon Berti
  2. 2B Isan Díaz
  3. RF Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Garrett Cooper
  5. 3B Starlin Castro
  6. LF Harold Ramirez
  7. C Jorge Alfaro
  8. CF Lewis Brinson
  9. P Elieser Hernandez (4.94 ERA, 5.67 FIP, 23.6 K%, 30.3 Hard Hit% in 47.1 IP)

Notes: For the third straight game, the Marlins have started these same eight position players in this precise batting order at these defensive positions. It’s the longest “streak of continuity” that they’ve had all season...By the numbers, Wells Dusenbury of the Sun Sentinel takes you through Anderson’s terrific hot streak over the past several weeks and how it establishes him as an important piece to the Marlins future...In the series opener, Bryan Holaday became the first Marlins position player to pitch in 2019. With rosters expanding in a few weeks, he’ll likely be the last one, too.
