The Atlanta Braves will continue their series against the Arizona Diamondbacks and will be looking to further tighten their grip on the NL East with another win. The Braves will go with a bullpen game Tuesday with Jesse Chavez getting the start against Arizona’s Luke Weaver.

After scoring 11 runs Monday, the Braves will stick with the same lineup with the exception of the return of Travis d’Arnaud who will be behind the plate and hitting seventh. Jorge Soler will lead off for the second straight game. Freddie Freeman had three hits in Monday’s win and will bat second. Eddie Rosario homered again Monday night and will be back in left field and will hit sixth.

For the Diamondbacks, Daulton Varsho will lead off and play right field. Ketel Marte, who had three hits in the opener, will bat second and play second. Josh VanMeter gets the start at third base with Ildemaro Vargas sliding over to shortstop.

Tuesday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 9:40 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports South.
