The Atlanta Braves will try to extend their winning streak to four games and clinch a series win in the process Wednesday night when they continue a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Braves took the first two games of the series including a 6-1 win Tuesday. Ian Anderson will get the start for Atlanta while the Diamondbacks will go with Merrill Kelly.

No surprises for the Braves in Wednesday’s lineup. Jorge Soler will bat leadoff for the third straight game and will be followed by Freddie Freeman and Ozzie Albies. Adam Duvall will be in centerfield while Eddie Rosario gets another start in left. William Contreras will be behind the plate and will hit eighth.

For the Diamondbacks, Josh Rojas is back in the leadoff spot and will play shortstop. Daulton Varsho will be behind the plate and will hit third. Kole Calhoun gets a start in right field and will be hitting fourth.
