The Atlanta Braves will try to lock down a series win Sunday afternoon when they wrap up a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta exploded for 15 runs in Saturday’s win and will be hoping to carry some of that momentum into Sunday’s series finale.

The Braves will stick with the same group again Saturday with the exception of Kevan Smith who will take over behind the plate. Abraham Almonte went 3-for-5 with a homer in Saturday’s win and will get his third straight start in left field.

For the Phillies, J.T. Realmuto will start the day game after the night game behind the plate and hit second. Odubel Herrera returns to the lineup and will play center while Ronald Torreyes gets the start at shortstop in place of Didi Gregorius. Aaron Nola will be on the mound and will hit ninth.

Sunday’s game will get underway at 1:05 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
