The Atlanta Braves will try to snap a two-game losing skid Wednesday night when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays. Atlanta dropped Tuesday’s series opener 3-1 despite another strong performance from Mike Soroka. The Braves are in need of an offensive jolt after scoring a total of four runs in their last three games.

Mike Foltynewicz will be on the mound for the Braves Wednesday and is coming off of arguably his best performance of the season.

For the Braves, Adeiny Hechavarria gets the start at shortstop in place of Dansby Swanson. Billy Hamilton will be in center for the second straight game while Francisco Cervelli will catch Foltynewicz.

Toronto’s young trio of Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will hold down the top three spots on Wednesday’s lineup. Teoscar Hernandez gets the start in center while Danny Jansen will be behind the plate.
