Atlanta will trot out a similar lineup to the one that plated 12 runs a night ago, with the exception that Kevan Smith will take over catching duties. The remainder of the Braves attack will hope to replicate the success they found on Tuesday, especially in the case of Austin Riley, who blasted two long homers and drove in six runs.
Abraham Almonte is back in left field and will be hitting sixth. Guillermo Heredia will hit seventh and will be in center while Kevan Smith will hit eighth and catch Max Fried.
For the Mets, Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil swap spots in the order with Alonso hitting second and McNeil third. J.D. Davis returns to the lineup at third base. Michael Conforto drops to sixth and will play right field.
