A seven-game road trip for the Atlanta Braves begins Monday night when they begin a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Braves have won seven of ten overall and most recently took two of three from the NL West leading San Francisco Giants at Truist Park. They will carry a franchise record 13-game road winning streak into Monday’s matchup. Drew Smyly will get the start for Atlanta while the Dodgers will counter with lefty Julio Urias.

Brian Snitker will roll out a different looking lineup for the series opener. Travis d’Arnaud sat out Sunday’s game but is back in there tonight and hitting fifth. Adam Duvall will make his first start in a Braves uniform in center field and will be hitting seventh. Eddie Rosario will make his second straight start in left field and will hit eighth.

No real surprises for the Dodgers with their lineup either. AJ Pollock starts in left field and will hit fifth. Chris Taylor gets the start in center while Will Smith will be behind the plate.

Monday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 10:10 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports South.
