The Atlanta Braves snapped a three-game skid with a 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies Thursday night. They will try to make it two-straight wins Friday when Huascar Ynoa matches up against Rockies righty Anthony Senzatela.

Ozzie Albies will return to the Braves lineup Friday and is back in the leadoff spot. Albies missed the last two games after fouling a ball off his knee in Los Angeles. Travis d’Arnaud is back behind the plate and will hit fifth. Adam Duvall will start for the second straight day in center and will hit seventh. Eddie Rosario gets another start in left and will hit eighth.

The Rockies will roll out the same group as Thursday with the exception of Raimel Tapia, who will hit seventh and play center, and Dom Nunez who is hitting eighth and will catch Senzatela.

Friday’s game has a scheduled start time of 8:40 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
