The Braves are using pretty much the same lineup once again tonight as they seek a win in Milwaukee.
No one on the Braves has faced Freddy Peralta, which makes sense given that he’s a rookie and the Braves haven’t played the Brewers yet this year.
Aside from Christian Yelich, none of the current Brewers have faced Foltynewicz all that much. Yelich has tormented his former division foe, and Keon Broxton has previously homered off the right-hander.
The Brewers are deploying a bit of a different arrangement with the righty on the hill for the Braves. The very good Travis Shaw returns to the hot corner. Noted defensive deficient Brad Miller is in there at second, and Manny Pina is the new backstop for the Brewers. The powerful Eric Thames is batting leadoff in Craig Counsell’s lineup.
