The Atlanta Braves will try to remain undefeated at home Sunday afternoon when they continue their series against the New York Mets.

Ozzie Albies is out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games with Adeiny Hechavarria back at second base. Brian Snitker said that Albies is still dealing with some stiffness in his right wrist and they are trying to manage his workload. Albies is available and may play on Sunday but won’t start.

Marcell Ozuna slides over to DH with Austin Riley returning to the lineup in left field with Adam Duvall in right against the left-hander.

For the Mets, JD Davis returns to the lineup as the DH in place of Yoenis Cespedes. Dominic Smith gets another start in left field while Tomas Nido gets the start behind the plate.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET and can be seen Sunday on Fox Sports Southeast.
