The Atlanta Braves will look to get the bats going to avoid the sweep in Sunday’s series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Braves will go with a bullpen game with Collin McHugh getting the start. Toronto will go with left-hander Yusei Kikuchi.
Brian Snitker will shake up Sunday’s lineup. Ozzie Albies moves into the third spot in the order while Austin Riley drops to fourth. Albies has a 1.251 OPS in 51 plate appearances against lefties this season. Travis d’Arnaud will catch and bat fifth with Sean Murphy getting a day off. Kevin Pillar starts in left field and will hit seventh.
