Dodgers vs. Braves: NLDS Game 4 lineups

Happy belated birthday, Freddy. For your present, you get to face Clayton Kershaw instead of Ricky Nolasco. - Greg Fiume

Both teams have used the same starting lineups for all four games of the series.

The Atlanta Braves are on the brink of elimination, and they will have to face the likely 2013 NL Cy Young winner to stay alive. The Los Angeles Dodgers have tabbed Clayton Kershaw to start on three days of rest for the first time in his career as they try to put the best-of-five series away at home. The Dodgers currently lead the series 2-1, but the two teams would return to Atlanta if the Braves were to force a Game 5. Atlanta will counter with veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia, who turned 37 years old on Sunday.

The Braves are going with the exact lineup that they used in the first three games of the series, despite the fact that this group scored only one run off of Kershaw in seven innings in Game 1.

The Dodgers are also rolling with an identical lineup for the fourth straight game.

First pitch is scheduled for 9:37 p.m. ET.
