Dodgers vs. Braves: Game 2 lineups

Los Angeles and Atlanta gear up for Game 2 of the NLDS.

The Los Angeles Dodgers scored a decisive victory in the opening game of their NLDS on Thursday, and now they'll try to take a second road game against the Atlanta Braves.

Zack Greinke is starting for the Dodgers, and the right-hander is still looking for his first taste of postseason success. He made three starts for the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2011 playoffs and posted a 6.48 ERA in just 16⅔ innings. Atlanta counters with lefty Mike Minor, who is making his postseason debut after a successful regular season which saw him record a 3.21 ERA in 204⅔ innings.

The lineups for each team:

Los Angeles is going with exactly the same lineup it used in Game 1, which makes sense since that group scored six runs off of Kris Medlen and company.

The Braves are also going with the same group as in Game 1, despite the fact that it was shut down by Clayton Kershaw. Of course, getting shut down by Kershaw is not something to be ashamed of and should not make anyone lose faith in a lineup.

The Braves need a win on Friday to avoid heading to Los Angeles down 0-2.
