After a blowout win Tuesday night, the Atlanta Braves will try to extend their winning streak to five-straight games when they wrap up a two-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday afternoon at Truist Park. The game will feature a good pitching matchup between Atlanta’s Charlie Morton and Philadelphia’s Zack Wheeler.
Michael Harris was in Atlanta’s original lineup for Wednesday, but he was scratched prior to the game due to a sore foot. Guillermo Heredia will start in centerfield and hit ninth. William Contreras starts again Wednesday as Travis d’Arnaud is dealing with a stomach bug. Contreras will hit seventh.

No surprises in the Phillies’ lineup either as they will stick with the same group as in Tuesday’s opener.
