The Atlanta Braves will look to avoid a sweep Sunday night when they wrap up a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta fell in extra innings in Friday’s series opener on a walk-off home run by Scott Kingery. They weren’t able to generate any offense against Zach Eflin on Saturday in a 4-1 loss.
Atlanta swung a trade on Sunday acquiring veteran lefty Tommy Milone from the Baltimore Orioles. Milone is in Philadelphia and will make his Braves debut Sunday night. The Phillies will counter with right-hander Jake Arrieta.
Adam Duvall returns to the lineup after sitting out Saturday’s game. Duvall left Friday’s series opener with a sore right Achilles. Travis d’Arnaud is hitting fifth and will be behind the plate.
The Phillies have won five straight and are back to .500 in the NL East standings. J.T. Realmuto is back behind the plate and hitting cleanup on Sunday. Phil Gosselin gets the start in left field with Andrew McCutchen at DH. Scott Kingery and Roman Quinn both return to the lineup and will be hitting eighth and ninth.
First pitch from Citizens Bank Park is scheduled for 7:08 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN.
