The Giants need to win Game 2 of the NLDS on Sunday to avoid making the trip to Cincinnati needing to take all three games from the Reds. They lost Game 1 of the series 5-2 at home on Saturday, and will play Game 2 in San Francisco before Cincinnati hosts the final three games of the series.

  1. Phillips 2B
  2. Cozart SS
  3. Votto 1B
  4. Ludwich LF
