The Cubs have switched things up a bit. The Braves have not.

With both teams looking to score a run for the first time in a while, here are the lineups for Atlanta and Chicago.

Let’s start with the Braves:

This is your normal, usual lineup for the Braves. Brian Snitker chalked up the struggles yesterday to just being “one of those days,” so I’d imagine that he’s firmly in the camp of “They’ve got to turn it around at some point, right?”

Meanwhile, here’s how the Cubs will be lining up this evening:

Old friend David Ross has switched things up a bit when compared to what Chicago was looking like on Sunday. The biggest omission is Javy Baez, who appears to be dealing with a hamstring issue at the moment. Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant are in their usual spots but other than that, there’s been a lot of shuffling going on between Sunday afternoon and Monday night for the Cubs.
