Here’s how the Braves line up against the Brewers in tonight’s homestand opener:

This will be the fourth time this season that Camargo has hit fifth, and the second in August. The first time in August, which was last Saturday, the Braves used this same lineup, and were dominated by Zach Wheeler in a 3-0 defeat.

These Braves have only faced Peralta once before, which makes sense given his rookie status. Nick Markakis collected two hits off of Peralta last month, while Ozzie Albies and Freddie Freeman each notched first-inning doubles.

Meanwhile, here is the Brewers’ starting nine for tonight’s series opener:

Only three Brewers have ever faced Kevin Gausman: Lorenzo Cain, Mike Moustakas, and Travis Shaw. Cain is 3-for-3 against him; Moustakas has a homer off him, and Shaw hasn’t had good results against him in a handful of plate appearances, due to their time spent together in the AL East.
