Today’s lineups have been revealed and while the Braves are rolling with the same exact lineup that they had yesterday, the Pirates have made a few changes for the day game.

For starters, here’s Atlanta’s lineup.

Nothing has changed from one-through-eight, which means that this will be a second consecutive day behind the mound for Brian McCann. He’s done that a few times during this season, but it’s not the most common thing for him here in his second go-around with the Braves.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has made a few changes at the bottom of their lineup.

Kevin Newman is still leading off, but he’ll be playing at second base. Cole Tucker will be batting seventh for the Pirates and he’ll be playing shortstop. Also, Jacob Stallings will be starting as the catcher and he’s in the eighth spot. Stallings and Tucker are the two changes that the Piratesmade, so we’ll see how that works out for them.
