MLB: Detroit Tigers at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves will look to clinch a series win Wednesday night when they continue their series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Atlanta’s offense exploded in Tuesday’s opener with a 12-5 win and they will be looking to carry some of that over tonight in support of Kevin Gausman.

Brian McCann will get the start behind the plate on Wednesday against right-hander Joe Musgrave. The rest of the Braves lineup remains the same as in the opener with Austin Riley hitting sixth in left field.

For the Pirates, reigning NL Player of the Month Josh Bell returns to the lineup in the cleanup spot playing first base. Gregory Polanco gets the start in right and is hitting sixth.
