Riding a four-game losing streak, the Atlanta Braves need a win in the worst way and will be looking to get back on track when they wrap up a six-game road trip against the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

Brian Snitker will shake things up with Sunday’s lineup. Abraham Almonte moves up to the clean up spot in the order while Ehire Adrianza gets the start at shortstop and will hit sixth. Kevan Smith will be behind the plate and Guillermo Heredia returns will get the start in center.

For the Marlins, Jorge Alfaro returns to the lineup after sitting out Saturday’s game. Alfaro was hit in the arm by a pitch from Charlie Morton in Friday’s series opener. Jose Devers gets the start at second base and Jon Berti moves across the diamond to third base.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
