The Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins are back at it again on Sunday with Sean Newcomb taking the hill for Atlanta. Miami will counter with right hander Jose Urena.

Ryan Flaherty returns to the lineup on Sunday against the right hander Urena. Flaherty got the start on Friday as well and while Brian Snitker was reluctant to call it a platoon situation for Flaherty and Jose Bautista, that certainly appears to be how the situation is trending.

Ender Inciarte moves up to the fifth spot in the order while Kurt Suzuki is back in there after an off day on Saturday.

Freddie Freeman has performed well against Urena in his career. Here is how the rest of the Braves have done.

  • Nick Markakis - 5-for-15, 2B, 5 RBI
  • Freddie Freeman - 5-for-12, 2B, 3B, HR, 3 RBI, 3 BB
  • Ender Inciarte - 4-for-13, 2B, 3B, RBI, BB
  • Ozzie Albies - 2-for-8, 2B
  • Kurt Suzuki - 2-for-4, HR
  • Johan Camargo - 0-for-2

Justin Bour is out of Don Mattingly’s lineup on Sunday with Miguel Rojas shifting over to first base.

Here is how the Marlins have performed historically against Newcomb.

  • J.T. Realmuto - 1-for-6
  • Brian Anderson - 2-for-2, RBI, BB
  • Justin Bour - 1-for-2, HR, BB
  • JT Riddle - 0-for-3
