UPDATE - In wake of Jorge Soler testing positive for COVID-19, the Braves have issued an updated lineup for Game 4.

The Atlanta Braves will try to punch their ticket to the NLCS Tuesday evening when they take on the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 4 of the NLDS. Charlie Morton will get the start for the Braves on short rest while Milwaukee will go with left-hander Eric Lauer.

Brian Snitker will make a change in his lineup for Game 4 with Joc Pederson getting the start in left field and hitting sixth. Pederson is 3-for-3 with two homers as a pinch-hitter through the first three games of the series. There are no other changes for Atlanta with the rest of the lineup.

Despite being shutout again, the Brewers will stick with the same lineup as in Game 3. Rowdy Tellez will be at first base and will hit fifth. Luis Urias starts again over Eduardo Escobar at third base and will be hitting sixth.

Game 4 is scheduled to get underway at 5:07 p.m. ET and can be seen on TBS.
