Francisco Cervelli, Matt Joyce in lineup for series opener against Blue Jays

Cervelli will make his fourth start for the Braves.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Colorado Rockies Russell Lansford-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves will take part in a Labor Day matinee at SunTrust Park Monday when they open a two-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Atlanta split a two-game series in Toronto last week so this will be a quick rematch for both clubs. Mike Soroka will get the start for the Braves while Jacob Waguespack will take the hill for the Blue Jays.

Brian Snitker’s lineup for Monday’s game features Matt Joyce hitting fifth and playing right. Francisco Cervelli will catch Soroka and hit seventh. Rafael Ortega starts again in left and will hit eighth.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is out of the Blue Jays’ lineup for Monday’s series opener with Brandon Drury getting the start at third. Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio are in the lineup and will occupy the top two spots in the order. Danny Jansen will be behind the plate and hit eighth.

First pitch from SunTrust Park is scheduled for 1:20 p.m. ET and can be seen on Fox Sports Southeast.
