Ender Inciarte will start in center field, batting eighth, after rookie Cristian Pache went on the IL with left groin tightness. Charlie Morton will take the mound with the regulars plus Inciarte behind him, as the Braves try to shake off a frustrating few games in a row. The offense looked reinvigorated, as Brian Snitker moved them back into the order that they had such success with in 2020, with Freddie Freeman batting second, followed by Marcell Ozuna batting third.

The Marlins will roll with pretty much the players we have grown accustomed to them playing.

It’s a fairly right-handed-heavy lineup against Morton, with the two left handed hitters being Corey Dickerson and Jazz Chisholm. Nick Neidert will be the starting pitcher for Miami. Neidert is a young righty who had his last real success in AA in 2018. He does have a decent prospect pedigree, so he isn’t without talent.
