The Atlanta Braves will wrap up the 2020 regular season Sunday afternoon against the Boston Red Sox. Atlanta has already clinched the No. 2 seed in the National League but will be awaiting the outcome of Sunday’s slate of games to find out who they will be playing in the Wild Card round.

The Braves made a roster move in preparation of the postseason on Sunday selecting the contract of Pablo Sandoval who will play third and bat fifth in Sunday’s game. Freddie Freeman will be hitting second and is just behind Juan Soto for the NL lead in batting average.

The Red Sox will roll out most of their regulars for the final game of the season. Jackie Bradley Jr. could be playing in his final game for Boston as he will become a free agent this offseason. Xander Bogaerts will hit third and play shortstop while J.D. Martinez will DH and bat clean up. Nick Pivetta will make his second start of the season for the Red Sox.

First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m. ET and can be seen on Fox Sports South.
