The Dodgers will roll out a lineup with no surprises for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

With Clayton Kershaw on the mound, Austin Barnes will start at catcher, as he did in Kershaw’s first three playoff starts. Will Smith will move to designated hitter, a role he assumed in Kershaw’s first two outings but not his third in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series.

Joc Pederson will start in left field and bat eighth against Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow, leaving AJ Pollock on the bench. Chris Taylor will bat seventh and play second base for the straight game after spraining his right ankle late in Game 5 of the NLCS on Friday.
