The Milwaukee Brewers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night at 8:09 PM ET and the official starting lineups have been announced.

The matchup, a first for the two teams, will see lefty Clayton Kershaw, coming off perhaps his best ever postseason outing taking on lefty Gio Gonzalez.

Dodgers (3-1) Lineup

Chris Taylor, LF Justin Turner, 3B David Freese, 1B Manny Machado, SS Matt Kemp, RF Enrique Hernandez, 2B Cody Bellinger, CF Yasmani Grandal, C Clayton Kershaw, LHP

Roberts will put in Freese for Max Muncy just like we say in Game 3 of the NLDS while Taylor will is in for Joc Pederson. Kemp will also stay in place over Yasiel Puig.

Home Brewers (3-0) Lineup

Lorenzo Cain, CF Christian Yelich, RF Ryan Braun, LF Jesus Aguilar, 1B Hernan Perez, 2B Mike Moustakas, 3B Manny Pina, C Orlando Arcia, SS Gio Gonzalez, LHP

What to Watch For: Yelich has gone 9 for 17 with a double and two homers off Kershaw in his career.

Of Note: The Brewers are starting Wade Miley in Game 2 on Saturday which means they’ll open up the series with two straight lefties before switching over to right-hander Jhoulys Chacin for Game 3 when the Dodgers host in Los Angeles.

It will be an interesting night for the Dodgers who are facing a team that went an NL-best 51-30 in 2018 while playing in Miller Park this season.
