ATLANTA (AP) — Chris Taylor in the leadoff position and sat Yasiel Puig as manager Dave Roberts adjusted his lineup to face Atlanta Braves left-hander Sean Newcomb in Game 3 of the National League Division Series on Sunday night.The right-handed hitting Taylor is taking the spot of the left-handed hitting Joc Pederson in the lineup.Another right-handed hitter http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-mike-montgomery-jersey , David Freese, is playing first base instead of Max Muncy and hitting third. Also, Matt Kemp is taking the place of Puig in right field and hitting fifth.Kemp, who played for the Braves in 2016-17, hit 11 homers in 183 at-bats against left-handers. He hit 10 homers in 279 at-bats against right-handers. Freese hit .321 against left-handers and .273 against right-handers.“To get Kemp, Freese, Taylor back involved against a starter like Newcomb, I think it gives us the best chance to win Ian Happ Jersey ,” Roberts said.Braves manager Brian Snitker said the lineup moves reflect the depth of the Dodgers’ bench.“It just goes to the depth of their team when you can do that,” Snitker said. “I mean, they have five guys on their bench that could be everyday players for a lot of teams. And the fact that they can just flip a whole lineup like that again shows the depth and the quality of club that they have.”Roberts said the depth helped keep his players fresh through a long season.“The versatility lends itself to overcoming 162 games … and keeps guys sharp mentally and physically,” Roberts said.Newcomb is starting ahead of veteran right-hander Kevin Gausman, who will be available in the bullpen. Newcomb nearly pitched a no-hitter against Los Angeles in July, and the Dodgers have beaten right-handers in the first two games of the series.The Braves are staying with rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. as their leadoff hitter but Snitker is moving Ender Inciarte into the No. 2 spot. Third baseman Johan Camargo, who hit second in Game 2, is hitting fifth.Otherwise Jose Quintana Jersey , the Braves’ lineup remains unchanged.The Dodgers lead the best-of-five series 2-0. The Braves must win to force a Game 4 on Monday. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Jalen Beeks had quite a turnaround.Beeks got his first major league win after a disastrous performance in his Tampa Bay debut, C.J. Cron had a two-run single and the Rays completed a three-game sweep by beating the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 on Thursday.Poor play at Tropicana Field wasn’t the only concern for the Angels, who have lost four straight overall. Star Mike Trout didn’t play because of a bruised right wrist and is listed as day to day. The two-time MVP was hurt when he slid into third base during a stolen base attempt on Wednesday night.”I caught my hand,” Trout said. ”Kind of weird. Felt like I just jammed it pretty bad. We taped it and tried to do as much as we could during the game (Wednesday). But when I woke up it was pretty sore.”Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Trout, who underwent treatment during the game, was not available off the bench.”We’ll take a look at it tomorrow and see what we have,” Scioscia said.Beeks (1-1) http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-yu-darvish-jersey , the second pitcher on a bullpen day, allowed two runs and two hits in five innings. The rookie left-hander, acquired from Boston for right-hander Nathan Eovaldi on July 25, gave up eight runs and 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings against Baltimore in his Tampa Bay debut Saturday.”I think my stuff played a little better today just because I was attacking, I was in the zone more,” Beeks said after his fourth career major league appearance. ”A lot of pitches I had in the last outing weren’t even close, weren’t even competitive pitches.”Beeks struck out four. Both hits came during his final inning.”It’s amazing what throwing the ball over the plate and throwing strikes can do,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.Tampa Bay’s Hunter Wood struck out five and allowed one hit over the first two innings. Diego Castillo and Sergio Romo Paul Konerko Jersey , who worked the ninth for his 13th save, completed the three-hitter.The Rays are 20-4 (.833) at Tropicana Field since June 11, the best home record in the majors during that stretch.Andrelton Simmons and Jefry Marte had run-scoring grounders in the seventh for Los Angeles, which has lost 20 of 27 away from home after starting the season 18-8 on the road.Cron drove in two with a single during a four-run fourth off Andrew Heaney (6-7). The Rays were aided by two batters hit by pitches and a wild pitch that allowed Tommy Pham to score from third.Pham, hit by a pitch from Heaney in the fourth, left after the sixth with a bruised right foot. X-rays were negative and the outfielder is day to day.Heaney allowed four runs and six hits in six innings and dropped to 0-5 in 10 road starts.”I don’t think it was a lack of confidence, just a lack of execution and making bad pitches at the wrong time,” Heaney said. ”Obviously putting guys on without letting them earn it is going to hurt you eventually.”OHTANI OUTAngels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani was out of the lineup for the second straight game http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-carlos-rodon-jersey , in part because regular first baseman Albert Pujols got a start as the DH on Thursday. Ohtani struck out as a pinch-hitter in the eighth and has five hits in his last 37 at-bats.MILESTONE NEARINGPujols doubled in four at-bats and has an eight-game hitting streak. He is five hits away from becoming the ninth player to collect at least 1,000 hits in both the AL and NL. Those on the list include Dave Winfield, Frank Robinson and Vladimir Guerrero.TRAINER’S ROOMRays: Cash said ace Blake Snell (left shoulder fatigue) will rejoin the rotation on Saturday night. The left-hander’s last outing came in the All-Star Game on July 17th.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Jaime Barria (6-7) will face Cleveland RHP Mike Clevinger (7-7) on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series. Los Angeles has lost its last 10 road games against the Indians.Rays: RHP Ryne Stanek (1-3) will start a bullpen game against Chicago White Sox RHP Lucas Giolito (7-8) on Friday night to begin a three-game set.—
