The lineups for Game 5 of the NLCS:
Dave Roberts on the amount of Cubs fans at Dodger Stadium: "I did notice it and I think it's great for baseball. We travel pretty well as well."
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said his new-look lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS was a nod to the Dodgers' issues against left-handed pitching. He is confident his rearranged middle of the order will have the ability to drive in runs.
It's a hot day at Dodger Stadium for NLCS Game 5. Might be a good idea to get this ride going to save pitchers a sweltering walk in from the bullpen.
Dave Roberts blames "mechanics" for Kenta Maeda's last couple outings but said he will "rise to the occasion" today.

¡Hola Chávez Ravine!
Clayton Kershaw just wrapped up a workout on the field. He will address reporters in two hours. No change of plans. Kenta Maeda today, Kershaw in Game 6.
The field is ready for Game 5 of the NLCS between the Dodgers and Cubs. One team will be one win away from the World Series after tonight.
It's another picturesque afternoon at Dodger Stadium with an expected game time temperature of 90 degrees.
