The two best teams in the National League will square off tonight when the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers open up a three-game series at SunTrust Park.

The Braves will have a new look to their lineup on Friday. The team announced earlier today that they had signed veteran shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria among several roster moves. Hechavarria will get the start tonight at short and will bat seventh. Matt Joyce will start in right field and will hit eighth.

For the Dodgers, Joc Pederson will lead off and play right field against right-hander Mike Soroka. Cody Bellinger launched his 40th home run of the season last night and will be in center field and hit clean up. Will Smith will hit eighth and catch Kenta Maeda.

Game time is set for 7:20 p.m. ET and can be seen of Fox Sports South.
