Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers (3:15 CT, FS1)

Fun start to the series yesterday, as presumptive MVP Christian Yelich put Brewtown ahead with another home run, only to see Colorado rally to tie in the ninth. Mike Moustakas played the hero, with a game-winning single in the 10th.

Atlanta Braves at Los Angeles Dodgers (8:37 CT, FS1)

The Dodgers, behind controversial Game 1 starter choice Hyun-Jin Ryu, shut out the Braves before a single tomahawk could be chopped. Aníbal Sánchez — yes, that Aníbal Sánchez — starts for Atlanta. Clayton Kershaw goes for L.A.

I’ll be out again, but I’ll try to get some lineups up closer to game time. Otherwise, you’re on your own: That guy throwing the killer hook is Kershaw, the unlikely-looking and jolly leadoff man is Joc Pederson, the freight train throwing guys out from the warning track and chewing up the basepaths is Yasiel Puig, and that old head who you thought was already retired and bat coaching somewhere is Matt Kemp.
