Otherwise the lineups are pretty much the same

Here are your lineups for tonight’s nightcap, in the form of the handy dandy Statcast graphic.

Basically, the lineups are almost the same as you’ve already seen. The Braves slide Austin Riley up to cleanup and Abraham Almonte down the lineup, while Guillermo Heredia and Kevan Smith replace Ender Inciarte and William Contreras, respectively. For the Cardinals, Andrew Knizner dons the tools of ignorance in lieu of Yadier Molina.

The Braves will hope for a better result than the first game of this doubleheader in the nightcap, as their season is not too many adverse results away from being effectively flatlined. Stay tuned to see whether Drew Smyly can somehow avoid the dreaded 12-for-12 in being allowed to face the top of the order a third time.
