LAD: Logan Forsythe (1.8 bWAR)

ARI: Brandon Drury (1.6 bWAR)

Forsythe hit only .224 on the season, but he hits lefties well and got on base well during the regular season with a .351 on base percentage. His defense is superior to Drury or Daniel Descalso.

Drury finished the regular season tied for seventh in the senior circuit with 37 doubles, and despite being relegated to the bench during the regular season, he set career highs in doubles and RBI (63)

Drury is likely starting game one because Clayton Kershaw is on the mound, but he will likely split playing time with Daniel Descalso depending if a right-hander or left-hander is on the mound.

Edge: Dodgers
