Fresh off of a victory in Game 1, Brian Snitker will stick with the same lineup for Game 2 for the Atlanta Braves when they continue the NLDS against the Miami Marlins. Right-hander Ian Anderson will be making his second career postseason start for the Braves while Miami will counter with right-hander Pablo Lopez.

Travis d’Arnaud had a huge day in Game 1 going 3-for-4 including a huge seventh inning home run that put the Braves in front for good. He has had some success against Lopez in his career going 3-for-7 with a pair of homers. He will hit clean up and will be behind the plate for Atlanta.

With a right-hander on the mound, Don Mattingly and the Marlins will shift their lineup around. Corey Dickerson will move into the leadoff spot and play left field. Former Brave Matt Joyce will get the start and will hit fifth and play right field. Magneuris Sierra had two hits in Game 1 and will be in center and hitting eighth.

First pitch for Game 2 is set for 2:08 p.m. ET at Minute Maid Park in Houston and can be seen on MLB Network.
