The Dodgers are hoping they won’t need their bullpen behind National League Championship Series Game 2 starter Clayton Kershaw, but in case they do …
• Kenley Jansen should be good to go after throwing only five pitches Friday.
• Brian Wilson figures to be sidelined after throwing 28 pitches.
• Ronald Belisario, who had a breezy nine-pitch inning, would probably start the eighth inning if needed – perhaps in combination with J.P. Howell, who threw 15. Howell might also be saved to face Carlos Beltran if the situation arises post-Kershaw.
• Edinson Volquez could be the multi-inning guy ahead of Chris Withrow, who threw 25 pitches Friday.
• Carlos Marmol lurks.
Andre Ethier, not surprisingly after playing 12 1/2 innings in his first start in four weeks, is not in today’s starting lineup. Skip Schumaker will start in center field.
However, A.J. Ellis will be back out there at catcher despite nearly five hours of intermittent crouching.
