Milwaukee's Ryan Braun (back) sitting on Thursday

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) is out of Thursday's Game 2 lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

What It Means:

Braun will not start on Thursday night after leaving Game 1 with a back strain. Tyrone Taylor will get the start in right field and bat seventh against Dodgers' left-hander Clayton Kershaw.

In 106 career postseason at-bats, Braun is hitting .330 with two home runs and 16 RBI.
