MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

After a good win Saturday, the Atlanta Braves will try once again to get back to the .500 mark when they wrap up a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Atlanta dropped the opener Friday 7-6 in 10 innings while blowing a late lead. They bounced back on Saturday behind a splendid performance from Max Fried who tossed seven scoreless innings and recorded three hits at the plate in a 9-0 win.

The Braves rolled out a new look to their lineup in Saturday’s win and will stick with it for the most part on Sunday. The only change will be behind the plate where Stephen Vogt will make his Braves debut and hit seventh.

For the Rays, Vidal Bruján will lead off and play second. Wander Franco drops to third and slides over to shortstop. Randy Arozarena is back in right field and will hit cleanup. After a day off Saturday, Mike Zunino will hit sixth and catch Rich Hill.

Sunday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 1:20 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast
