Culberson in for Camargo, Flowers returns to lineup in St. Louis finale

Johan Camargo gets a day off.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at St. Louis Cardinals Joe Puetz-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves will deploy a similar lineup to the one that was so successful in winning the series for today’s capper in St. Louis.

Flowers is back in the fifth spot after leaving Friday’s game with a cramp. Culberson spells Camargo and will make his tenth start at third base this season.

The Cardinals have made a few shifts in their lineup.

Jedd Gyorko is in there at shortstop for just the fourth time (third start) this year. Francisco Peña has had an awful year as Yadier Molina’s backup (39 wRC+), but with a day game after a night game, his presence makes sense.

None of the Braves have yet faced Gant, their former teammate. Most of the St. Louis lineup has some experience against Foltynewicz, with Ozuna having the most at-bats against him given his former presence in Miami.
