The lineups are out for today’s game between the Phillies and the Braves. When it comes to the Braves, it took us until September but the Braves have finally put out a true “Getaway Day” lineup (even though they’re going to be at home this weekend). Here are the lineups:
The first three spots for the Braves are what you’d expect, and then the rest of the lineup gets really interesting. Adam Duvall is hitting cleanup! Adeiny Hechavarria and Rafael Ortega are both starting! Austin Riley is actually playing third base! That is definitely the type of lineup you see when you have an extremely comfortable lead in the division and your playoff seed is basically confirmed as well.
Meanwhile, the Phillies have made only one change from last night — Brad Miller is starting in left field and Maikel Franco will be starting today’s game in the dugout. Other than that, it’s a lineup that you’d expect to see from a team that can’t afford to lose any more games whatsoever.
