Charlie Culberson starts in place of Ozzie Albies on Sunday

Albies is nursing a tight hamstring.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Yankees Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals are scheduled to wrap up a rain-shortened two-game series Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park. There is more rain in the forecast for Sunday afternoon so stay tuned.

If the game does happen, Ronald Acuna Jr. will return to the leadoff spot for the Braves while Charlie Culberson will bat second in place of Ozzie Albies. The rest of the lineup is as you would expect with Tyler Flowers getting the nod behind the plate.

For the Nationals, Dave Martinez will roll out the same lineup as in Friday night’s game with Matt Adams getting another start at first base.

Mike Foltynewicz will be on the mound for the Braves while the Nationals will counter with Max Scherzer. First pitch is scheduled for around 1:35 p.m. ET and the game can be seen on Fox Sports South.
