In order to have a winning homestand, Atlanta needs to win the final three games of this series. That starts tonight, as Atlanta looks to rebound from last night's embarrassing loss at the hands of the El Paso Chi...er, San Diego Padres. Tonight's lineup is pretty standard:

  1. BJ Upton, CF
  2. Tommy La Stella, 2B
  3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  4. Justin Upton, LF
  5. Jason Heyward, RF
  6. Evan Gattis, C
  7. Chris Johnson, 3B
  8. Andrelton Simmons, SS
  9. Julio Teheran

In a bit of roster-related news, Atlanta optioned Tyler Pastornicky back to AAA Gwinnett late last night in favor of Phil Gosselin, who has been obliterating AAA pitching all year. He'll certainly be a marginal upgrade off the bench.
