The Atlanta Braves hope to snap a four-game losing streak on Saturday when they continue their series against the Milwaukee Brewers. Ronald Acuña Jr. is not in the Braves lineup on Saturday. Acuña left Friday’s game in the seventh inning after legging out an infield single. The Braves announced later that Acuña had suffered a groin strain. While it hasn’t been deemed serious, he will likely get a day or two off.

In Acuña’s absence, Johan Camargo moves up into the fifth spot of the batting order while Charlie Culberson gets the start in left field.

For Milwaukee, Eric Thames gets another start in right field with Christian Yelich sliding over to center. Brad Miller starts again at second base.

First pitch is scheduled for around 4:05 and the game can be seen via FS1.

Update - Ryan Braun has been scratched from the Brewers’ lineup. Hernan Perez will take his place in left field.
