Both Braves and Cubs go back to similar lineups for series finale

The Cubs are sending out a right-handed pitcher, which means that Ender Inciarte will be leading off for the Braves.

The moment of Ozzie Albies hitting at the top of the lineup was just that — a moment. Yu Darvish is a right-handed pitcher, which means that Ozzie is back in the lower half of Atlanta’s lineup and Ender Inciarte is back in the lineup in general and at his “customary” spot of hitting leadoff.

Additional changes include Ronald Acuna Jr. going back to left field, Brian McCann is back in the lineup and Johan Camargo is back on the bench. This is basically what you’d expect to see this lineup look like against a righty.

Meanwhile, Joe Maddon has gone back to a lineup that is familiar to what they had in the first game of this series.

The big change is that Jason Heyward will be on the bench for tonight’s game. He played right field on Monday and center field on Wednesday, but he’ll be on substitute duty for tonight’s game. Other than that, Chicago’s lineup is similar to what they rolled out on Monday night. They scored a grand total of zero (0) runs while also booting the ball all over the place on defense on Monday, so hopefully we’ll see a similar result tonight.
