Julio Teheran will be on the mound today when the Atlanta Braves open the 2019 regular season against the Philadelphia Phillies.

There are no surprises in the Braves’ Opening Day lineup. Ender Inciarte is in the leadoff spot against Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. He is followed by Josh Donaldson, Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuña Jr. who will be the primary clean up hitter for at least the beginning of the season. Brian McCann gets the start behind the plate and is hitting seventh.

Philadelphia’s new additions are front and center in Gabe Kapler’s Opening Day lineup. Andrew McCutchen will leadoff and is followed by shortstop Jean Segura and right fielder Bryce Harper. J.T. Realmuto will hit fifth behind Rhys Hoskins.

First pitch is slated for 3:05 p.m. ET and can be seen on Fox Sports Southeast.
