Muncy, Pederson return to Dodgers lineup for Game 4
ATLANTA (AP) — Max Muncy is starting at first base and Joc Pederson is in left field for the Los Angeles Dodgers against Atlanta Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz in Monday’s Game 4 of the NL Division Series.
Left-hander Rich Hill is on the mound for Los Angeles.
“I think that we had our reasons why we decided on Game 1 versus Game 2,” Roberts said. “But if there’s a potential Game 5, we feel very confident that Clayton should be the guy taking the baseball.”
Julio Teheran, who opened the season as Atlanta’s No. 1 starter, continues to be held in the bullpen for long relief. Teheran was 9-9 with a 3.94 ERA in the regular season. He shared the team lead with Foltynewicz by starting 31 games.
“We had mulled over him making a start, and liked the matchups better with the other guys pretty much,” Snitker said
Snitker moved second baseman Ozzie Albies to the No. 2 spot in the batting order — the team’s third option behind leadoff hitter Ronald Acuna Jr. in the last three games. Third baseman Johan Camargo hit second in the first two games, followed by Ender Inciarte in Game 3. .
Camargo is hitting fifth and Inciarte is seventh in Monday’s lineup.
