Exactly 30 years ago today, Kirk Gibson hit a big home run for the Dodgers in the first game of a World Series that they would go on to win. The Dodgers are surely hoping that there is some kind of supernatural power in that anniversary as they host Game 3 of their NLCS against the Brewers tonight.

The NLCS is knotted at one game apiece, with the next three to be played in front of the LA crowd. The series might not make it back to Milwaukee! That’s to be determined over the next three days as the Brewers look to turn their strange bullpen-heavy pitching concoction into a triumphant postseason team. It might work. Stranger things have happened.

The game is set to get going on FS1 tonight at 7:39. If you tune in any earlier than that you might have to listen to either David Ortiz or Alex Rodriguez, which no one should ever want.

Here is the starting lineup for the visiting Brewers:

  1. Lorenzo Cain - CF
  2. Christian Yelich - RF
  3. Ryan Braun - LF
  4. Travis Shaw - 2B
  5. Jesus Aguilar - 1B
  6. Mike Moustakas - 3B
  7. Erik Kratz - C
  8. Orlando Arcia - SS
  9. Jhoulys Chacin - P

And the starting lineup for the home team Dodgers:

  1. Joc Pederson - LF
  2. Max Muncy - 1B
  3. Justin Turner - 3B
  4. Manny Machado - SS
  5. Cody Bellinger - CF
  6. Yasiel Puig - RF
  7. Yasmani Grandal - C
  8. Enrique Hernandez - 2B
  9. Walker Buehler - P
