LOS ANGELES - Joe Maddon tried to spark his offense with a few lineup changes for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.
It didn't work and now the Cubs' scoring drought has stretched to 18 innings, the longest postseason scoreless streak in franchise history.
The Cubs have tallied just six hits (five singles and a double) and three walks in those 18 innings and were left scratching their heads searching for answers after Game 3.
Maddon walked back on some of those Game 3 lineup moves, inserting Anthony Rizzo back to the the three-hole with Ben Zobrist returning to the cleanup spot.
Javy Baez stays at fifth and Addison Russell's slide continues as he is bumped all the way down to eighth.
Rizzo, Russell and Jason Heyward (inserted back in right field after sitting Game 3 in favor of Jorge Soler) are hitting a combined .072 (5-for-69) in the playoffs.
Willson Contreras (5-for-10 this postseason) is catching.
The Cubs will turn to veteran John Lackey for one of the "Big Boy Games" he's been talking about all year.
Every game in the postseason can be classified as a must-win game, but the Cubs are certainly facing urgency Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. They don't want to fall down another game, especially with all-world pitcher Clayton Kershaw looming.
Here's how the Cubs will line up against 20-year-old Dodgers starter Julio Urias:
1. Dexter Fowler - CF
2. Kris Bryant - 3B
3. Anthony Rizzo - 1B
4. Ben Zobrist - LF
5. Javy Baez - 2B
6. Willson Contreras - C
7. Jason Heyward - RF
8. Addison Russell - SS
9. John Lackey - P
Urias is making his first career postseason start. He has just 79 big-league innings under his belt, including two shutout innings against the Washington Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS last week.
Here's how the Dodgers will line up behind Urias as they look to deliver the knockdown blow to the Cubs:
1. Chase Utley - 2B
2. Corey Seager - SS
3. Justin Turner - 3B
4. Adrian Gonzalez - 1B
5. Josh Reddick - RF
6. Joc Pederson - CF
7. Yasmani Grandal - C
8. Andrew Toles - LF
9. Julio Urias - P
Apart from Urias, it's the same lineup that put up six runs off Jake Arrieta and the Cubs bullpen in Game 3 Tuesday night.
