The lineups for tonight’s game between the Braves and the Reds have been revealed. The Braves also took the lineup announcement to reveal that they’ll be donning the good old Hank Aaron-era throwbacks. It’s always nice to see those uniforms, and here’s the lineup that will be wearing those uniforms for Thursday’s game:

Brian McCann will be catching Max Fried tonight, and he’ll be hitting fifth. Adam Duvall slides down to sixth and Ender Inciarte goes down to sevneth. Hopefully this crew will continue to produce like they have in recent days.

Meanwhile, here’s what the Reds are looking like tonight:

This is indicative of a lineup that’s meant to counter Fried being a lefty, so we’ll probably see something different from Cincinnati as the series progresses.

So, what do you all think about tonight’s lineups?
