Photos: Giants facing a tougher test against Dodgers in NLDS Game 2

Although the Giants were clear winners in Game 1, many expect a more difficult challenge as San Francisco tries to win Game 2 of the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

San Francisco faces Los Angeles’ southpaw Julio Urias. In response, the Giants changed their lineup, which is something they’ve done all season.

Slater is the superior defender but Bryant is more comfortable playing center field in San Francisco. Will the move work? This photo gallery is tracking the game.
