The Atlanta Braves will continue their homestand Friday night when they begin a three-game series against the Miami Marlins. Charlie Morton will be on the mound for Atlanta while Miami will go with tough righty Sandy Alcantara.
Marcell Ozuna is in the lineup for the Braves Friday for the first time since August 14 where he started and struck out twice in two at-bats before being replaced by a pinch-hitter. Ozuna will play left field with Michael Harris in center and Robbie Grossman in right. Ronald Acuña Jr. will handle DH duties for the third straight game.
For the Marlins, Brian Anderson will hit second and play right field. Garrett Cooper gets the start as the DH and will bat third. Rookie JJ Bleday will be in center and hit clean up. Jacob Stallings will catch Alcantara and hit sixth.
