The Atlanta Braves will wrap up a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday afternoon and will be trying to put Wednesday’s disappointing loss behind them. The Braves won the series opener Tuesday and carried a 1-0 lead into the ninth on Wednesday. However, Luke Williams connected for a walk-off, two-run home run off of Will Smith to once again prevent Atlanta from moving above the .500 mark for the season.

The Braves have a couple of changes for their lineup Thursday. Ender Inciarte will get the start in center and will be hitting seventh. Kevan Smith will hit eighth and be behind the plate as William Contreras gets the day off after catching the first two games in the series.

For the Phillies, last night’s hero Luke Williams will hit sixth and play third base. Odubel Herrera returns to the lineup and will lead off and play center. J.T. Realmuto gets the day off with Andrew Knapp taking over behind the plate.

First pitch from Citizens Bank Park is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports South.
