ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays started four right-handed hitters at the top of their batting order and seven in all against Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Julio Urías in World Series Game 4 on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay made one change from the lineup it used against left-hander Clayton Kershaw in the opener, playing Mike Brosseau at third base in place of Joey Wendle.

Los Angeles reverted to its lineup against left-handers for the matchup with Ryan Yarbrough, using the same batting order the Dodgers started in Game 2, except for dropping second baseman Kiké Hernández one slot to ninth and moving up left fielder Chris Taylor to eighth.

The roof was open at new $1.2 billion Globe Life Park after staying closed for the first time in the postseason for Game 3, when the game time temperature was 53 degrees.

Los Angeles led 2-1 in the best-of-seven Series, seeking its first title since 1988.

Tampa Bay is in the Series for the second time following a five-game loss to Philadelphia in 2008.

Right fielder Mookie Betts led off for the visiting Dodgers, followed by shortstop Corey Seager, third baseman Justin Turner, first baseman Max Muncy, catcher Will Smith, center fielder Cody Bellinger, designated hitter AJ Pollock, Taylor and Hernández.

First baseman Yandy Díaz led off for the Rays, followed by designated hitter Randy Arozarena, Brosseau, left fielder Manuel Margot, second baseman Brandon Lowe, shortstop Willy Adames, right fielder Hunter Renfroe, catcher Mike Zunino and center fielder Kevin Kiermaier.

Urías pitched three perfect innings to win Game 7 of the NL Championship Series last Sunday against Atlanta and is 4-0 with a 0.56 ERA in one postseason start and three relief appearances. He allowed an earned run and seven hits in 16 innings with 16 strikeouts and three walks.

Yarbrough threw 19 pitches in the World Series opener, his only action since pitching five innings against Houston in the AL Championship Series on Oct. 13.
