Tonight’s lineups have been released and let’s go right ahead and take a look at what these two teams will have in store for us.

As is usual around here, let’s start with how the Braves are going to line up this evening:

The top four did a little bit of shuffling — Jorge Soler’s batting leadoff, Freddie Freeman’s second, Ozzie’s hitting third and Riley’s batting cleanup. Additionally, Eddie Rosario is getting another crack at it after he hit for Atlanta’s second cycle of 2021 yesterday. Also, William Contreras is set to make his first start since August after he got called back up on September 10. Hopefully tonight will be the night where he gets his first big league hit since June.

On the other side of things, here’s how Arizona will look:

Henry Ramos and Ildemaro Vargas are the two new names in this lineup when compared to what they rolled out on Sunday. Other than that, the usual suspects for Arizona are in this lineup as they take on the Braves tonight.
