NLDS Game 2 lineups: Dodgers vs. Nationals

The Dodgers are rolling with the same lineup in Saturday's Game 2 of the National League Division Series that gave them a 1-0 series lead over the Nationals after Friday's 4-3 victory in Game 1.

Shortstop Corey Seager, who homered on the first postseason pitch he saw, and third baseman Justin Turner are once again batting second and third, respectively. Rookie Andrew Toles, who went 1-for-2 on Friday, is back in left field and hitting eighth, with veteran Howie Kendrick available off the bench, as the Dodgers face Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark.

The Nationals have inserted Jose Lobaton behind the plate and in the eighth spot, but otherwise are also going with the same lineup in Game 2 against another left-handed starter, this time Rich Hill. Right fielder Bryce Harper is once again hitting second, with left fielder Jayson Werth batting third.
