Let's make this four in row, please.

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES PITTSBURGH PIRATES
Jason Heyward - RF Gregory Polanco - RF
Andrelton Simmons - SS Josh Harrison - SS
Freddie Freeman - 1B Neil Walker - 2B
Justin Upton - LF Russell Martin - C
Chris Johnson - 3B Pedro Alvarez - 1B
Tommy La Stella - 2B Starling Marte - CF
Gerald Laird - C Travis Snider - LF
Emilio Bonifacio - CF Brent Morel - 3B
Ervin Santana - RHP Vance Worley - RHP

I'm guessing Clint Hurdle has seen enough throwing errors from Alvarez at third base. Now he's going to try him at first.
