Austin Barnes was back in the Dodgers lineup to catch lefty ace Clay­ton Ker­shaw in Game 4 of the Na­tional League Cham­pi­onship Se­ries against the Braves on Thurs­day night in Ar­ling­ton, Texas, which ended too late for this edi­tion. It was the third start this post­sea­son, all the games started by Ker­shaw. Barnes, above right, was 4-for-5 at the plate in the pre­views two starts that the Dodgers both won. Ker­shaw, above left, was ini­tially sched­uled to pitch Game 2 of the NLCS two days ear­lier be­fore get­ting scratched be­cause of back spasms. The Braves had their same lineup Thurs­day as Game 3, all right-han­ders ex­cept for NL MVP con­tender Fred­die Freeman and switch-hit­ter Jo­han Ca­margo. The Dodgers had their five left-handed bat­ters be­tween the Nos. 2 and 7 spots in the or­der against Bryse Wil­son, mak­ing his post­sea­son de­but as the third Braves right-handed rookie to start in this se­ries.
