Here’s what the Braves are looking like tonight:
As usual during this current run-in with the injury bug, most of the changes you’re going to be are going to come between spots 5-through-9. Tonight, the two outfielders flanking Ronald Acuña Jr. will be Adam Duvall in left field and Charlie Culbersonin right field. Fortunately, Adeiny Hechavarria appears to be alright and he’ll be batting eighth. Also, get ready to see a lot of Tyler Flowers for at least the next 10 days.
Meanwhile, here’s Miami’s lineup — provided to you by our friends over at Fish Stripes!
The Marlins have never used this exact lineup before! Maybe "different" means "scoring more than 1 run"— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) August 21, 2019
1. SS Berti
2. 2B Díaz
3. RF Anderson
4. 1B Walker
5. 3B Castro
6. LF Granderson
7. C Alfaro
8. CF Brinson
9. SP Smith
1-3 for the Marlins is exactly the same as what it was last night. There are a couple of changes so while it is a “different” lineup, there’s still plenty of familiar faces here. Our fish friends are hoping that this change will result in a change of fortune. They’ll have their work cut out for them, since the Marlins have had a rough go of it this year against Julio Teheran.
