The Atlanta Braves will wrap up their homestand with a three-game series against the Miami Marlins which gets underway Monday afternoon. Ian Anderson will make his third start of the season for Atlanta while Miami will counter with right-hander Jose Urena who will be making his 2020 season debut after spending most of the season on the Covid injured list.

Ender Inciarte returns to the Braves starting lineup for the first time since September 2 with Adam Duvall getting a day off. Travis d’Arnaud is back behind the plate while Adeiny Hechavarria gets another start at second base.

Trade deadline addition Starling Marte will hit second and play centerfield. Former Brave Matt Joyce will be hitting clean up and playing right. Brian Anderson gets Monday off with Jon Berti at third base and Garrett Cooper at DH.

First pitch Monday is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET and the game will be streamed exclusively on MLB’s YouTube page.
