The Atlanta Braves will try to make it two straight wins Sunday when they wrap up a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers. Atlanta gained some much-needed lineup depth at the trade deadline with the acquisition of Adam Duvall and Jorge Soler and Sunday’s lineup is an example of that as they are stacking right-handed hitters against lefty Brett Anderson.

Ozzie Albies moves into the lead off spot with Soler moving up to the second spot in the order. They will be followed by Freddie Freeman, Austin Riley and Dansby Swanson. Adam Duvall will be in left and will hit sixth while Guillermo Heredia starts in center and will be hitting seventh. Kevan Smith will start the day game after the night behind the plate.

The Brewers will go with a different look for their lineup Sunday as well. Tyrone Taylor moves into the leadoff spot and will be followed by Omar Navaez who returns to the lineup after a day off Saturday. Eduardo Escobar moves across the diamond to play third base and will be in the cleanup spot. Rowdy Tellez gets the start at first while Lorenzo Cain and Jackie Bradley Jr. will round out Milwaukee’s outfield.

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