The Atlanta Braves will try to make it two straight wins Saturday evening when they continue their series against the Washington Nationals. Max Fried will be on the mound for Atlanta while Patrick Corbin will get the start for Washington.

The Braves will stick with the same lineup as Friday night except for the inclusion of Guillermo Heredia who will play center and hit eighth. Travis d’Arnaud is back in the lineup for the second straight night and will hit seventh.

The Nationals will stick with the same lineup as Friday’s series opener. Yadiel Hernandez will be in left field and hitting fifth. Luis Garcia, who had two hits Friday night, will be back at second base and hitting seventh. Tres Barrera will start again behind the plate and will hit eighth.

Saturday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 6:05 p.m. ET from Nationals Park and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
