Offense wasn’t the problem for the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday evening, as the team produced six runs against the Arizona Diamondbacks. While it remains to be seen as to whether the team’s bullpen can hold up on Wednesday and beyond, Brian Snitker will deploy the following lineup when the Braves and D-Backs square off in game two of a three-game set.
As noted here, the headliner for the evening is the return of Brian McCann, who was reinstated from the injury list earlier on Wednesday. He gets the nod against a right-handed pitcher in Zack Godley and, all things considered, that makes perfect sense.
Elsewhere, the Braves will give Johan Camargo the night off against a righty, with Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis grabbing starting spots in the outfield. At this stage, seeing Ozzie Albies in the lead-off spot is not a surprise but, given the match-up, it is also noteworthy.
Stay tuned as the D-Backs lineup will be revealed later this afternoon.
