Afternoon baseball!

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants will wrap up a four-game series on Thursday. For the sake of increased entertainment, this is a (very) early game with a 12:10 pm ET first pitch time, and while the stands may not be full at Turner Field for this one, we will be here to take you through the festivities.

The pitching match-up isn't exactly a favorable one for the home team, with Aaron Blair taking on All-Star left-hander Madison Bumgarner, but the Braves are playing much improved baseball recently, leaving some room for optimism. Here are today's lineups, and let's make it a point to enjoy this one together.

Today's Lineups

Denard Span - CF Ender Inciarte - CF
