The Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays are getting set for a three-game series among baseball’s best. The Rays have the best record in baseball while, *technically* the Dodgers have the second-best record in the National League. But after taking two of three from the Braves earlier this week, I think it’s fair to call the Dodgers the National League’s best team.
The Dodgers are sending RHP Noah Syndergaard to the mound on Friday, going up against a lefty, Jalen Beeks (but more on the pitching matchup later).
Here’s a look at the lineup Dave Roberts is sending out to face the southpaw.
