Spring Training Open Thread: Astros at Braves

The Braves take on the Astros once again today, and will hope to score a run this time. Here is today's batting lineup:

Nate McLouth, CF
Martin Prado, 2B
Melky Cabrera, RF
Troy Glaus, 1B
Brian McCann, C
Yunel Escobar, SS
Matt Diaz, LF
Brooks Conrad, 3B
Tommy Hanson, P

This will mark the first time this spring the team hasn't used a DH. Another big note in the lineup is the position of Brooks Conrad, who is playing third base for the first time this spring. His position flexibility will be key if he hopes to make the team. Also, no Jason Heyward for the first time this spring. I'm glad he's getting a day off.
