Dodgers vs. Astros World Series Game 6 lineups

The series goes back to LA as the Astros try to end things.

The Astros have a chance to win the World Series in Game 6, and the Dodgers need to hang on for a Game 7 if they want to have any shot at taking home the trophy.

Designated hitters are no longer a factor, so both Justin Verlander and Rich Hill will be batting to start the game. Below are both lineups, as well as how they’ve done so far in the series.

The Astros have moved Brian McCann up in their lineup from the last game, and Josh Reddick is down a few spots.

George Springer, CF (7 for 21, .333)
Alex Bregman, 3B (6 for 22, .273)
Jose Altuve, 2B (6 for 24, .250)
Carlos Correa, SS (7 for 21, .333)
Yuli Gurriel, 1B (5 for 20, .250)
Brian McCann, C (4 for 19, .211)
Marwin Gonzalez, LF (2 for 17, .118)
Josh Reddick, RF (4 for 19, .211)
Justin Verlander, P (0 for 1, .000)

The Dodgers are slotting Joc Pederson back into the starting lineup in left field, and Logan Forsythe will be back at second base. Justin Turner and his slight leg injury can’t hide at DH anymore, so he’ll be at third for Game 6.

Chris Taylor, CF (4 for 18, .222)
Corey Seager, SS (5 for 20, .250)
Justin Turner, 3B (3 for 20, .150)
Cody Bellinger, 1B (4 for 20, .200)
Yasiel Puig, RF (3 for 21, .143)
Joc Pederson, LF (4 for 11, .364)
Logan Forsythe, 2B (4 for 13, .308)
Austin Barnes, C (3 for 16, .188)
Rich Hill, P (0 for 1, .000)

It’s a rematch of Game 2 on the mound, and that game was one of the most bananas postseason games in history. It’s a lot to live up to, but the way this series is going, these lineups are ready to do just that.

How short is Jose Altuve, really? A very serious investigation
