The World Series will continue Sunday night with the Atlanta Braves trying to close things out in Game 5 against the Houston Astros. Atlanta came from behind Saturday night in Game 4 to win 3-2 giving them a 3-1 edge in the series. The Braves will go with another bullpen game Sunday with Tucker Davidson getting the start. The Astros will go with Game 1 starter Framber Valdez who will be trying to bounce back from a rough outing.

With a left-hander on the mound, the Braves will make some adjustments to their lineup. Jorge Soler moves back into the leadoff spot with Eddie Rosario dropping to fifth in the order. Adam Duvall hits sixth and will be followed by Travis d’Arnaud and Dansby Swanson.

Faced with a must-win situation, Dusty Baker is shaking up the Astros’ lineup for Game 5. Carlos Correa moves up to the third spot in the order. Alex Bregman is 1-for-14 in the series and drop down to the seventh spot in the order.

Game 5 is scheduled to begin at 8:15 p.m. ET and can be seen on FOX.
