Tonight’s lineups have been revealed by both teams. The Braves had no reason other than injury to switch from the lineup that brought them a lot of success last night, so Atlanta will have the same lineup for tonight’s game at Fenway Park.
Unfortunately, that’s now three straight games that Ronald Acuña Jr. has had to miss out on due to injury. The Braves got some good news this afternoon, though — Acuña should be back in time for Friday’s series opener against Washington.
Meanwhile, here’s what the Red Sox will look like for the final game of this series:
J.D. Martinez is back in Boston’s lineup after missing the past two games due to the effects of getting hit on his wrist. Even though you’d figure that the Red Sox would much rather have him in the lineup than on the sidelines, he’s been in the midst of an incredibly poor season and he has looked nothing like the J.D. Martinez that baseball fans are used to seeing.
Also, say hello to Old Friend Jose Peraza!
