The Atlanta Braves will go for their second straight win against the Houston Astros Wednesday night when the World Series continues at Minute Maid Park. Max Fried will get the start for Atlanta in Game 2 while Houston will go with right-hander Jose Urquidy.

With a righty on the mound, the Braves will make some adjustments to their Game 2 lineup. Eddie Rosario, who has an 11-game hitting streak, is back in the leadoff spot. Jorge Soler will DH again and slots into the fifth spot. Joc Pederson moves will be in right field and moves up to sixth in the order.

For the Astros, Houston will stick with the same lineup with the exception of Jose Siri getting the start in centerfield over Chas McCormick. Siri is 1-for-8 with two RBI this postseason and will be hitting eighth.

Game 2 of the World Series is scheduled to begin at 8:09 p.m. ET and can be seen on FOX.
