Here are your lineups for today’s series finale:

This will be Johan Camargo’s fourth start in left field, and sixth total start in the outfield this year. The Braves have never used this batting order before, but they have started this defensive arrangement twice before — one was a previous Kevin Gausman start (against the Mets).

The Rockies are rolling out their defensive arrangement and lineup for the first time, as this is the first time Garett Hampson, Tony Wolters, and Daniel Murphy are all in the lineup together.

Despite the Braves not having faced Tyler Anderson since 2016, and Gausman never having pitched against Colorado before today, a smattering of hitters on both sides have some experience against the opposing pitcher. Charlie Culberson, Josh Donaldson, Freddie Freeman, Ender Inciarte, and Nick Markakis have all seen Tyler Anderson a tiny bit. They each have at least one hit against him, and Donaldson has homered off of him. For the Rockies, Drew Butera, Ian Desmond, Murphy, and Mark Reynolds have all seen a tiny bit of Gausman, but haven’t really managed anything notable against him.
