It’s been a rough day, but seeing Acuña at the top of the lineup is always nice.

The lineups for tonight’s game between the Braves and the Mets have been released. It’s been a rough day for news, so let’s try to put that in the back of our collective minds as we take a look at what the two teams will look like tonight.

Here’s Atlanta’s lineup:

After making a pinch-hit appearance yesterday, Ronald Acuña Jr. is back in his regular spot of leading off and playing right field. Meanwhile, Guillermo Heredia has gotten the nod to take the field in center today and Jeff Mathis will be making another start as the catcher this evening.

On the other side of things, let’s meet the Mets:

Well, would you look at that? Johneshwy Fargas was called up earlier today and he’ll be making his major league debut while batting in the ninth spot behind the pitcher. The top three spots in this lineup are what you’d expect and the rest of it is the Mets making do with what is currently a bad situation for them when it comes to the injuries. This ought to be interesting to watch.
