The lineups for tonight’s game are out. If you’re looking for any changes to be made between tonight and yesterday evening’s game, then you’re looking in the wrong place. Here’s Atlanta’s lineup:

Abraham Almonte is still in the lineup and still batting sixth. He’ll be looking for his first hit as a member of the Braves in tonight’s game, as he failed to pick up a hit in four plate appearances yesterday.

Here’s how Washington looks:

Ryan Zimmerman is batting cleanup for the Nationals and Victor Robles is getting the center field spot for Washington tonight. Additionally, they’re doing the thing where the pitcher bats eighth while another batter hits ninth. That man batting ninth is Robles, who is making his return to the lineup following a very unlucky trip to the IL due to an ankle injury. He was doing pretty well at the plate before he suffered his unfortunate injury, so the Nationals will surely be hoping that he’ll pick up where he left off the last time he was on the field.
