Nationals Vs. Braves Lineups: Brian McCann, Martin Prado Miss Series Finale

The Atlanta Braves will go for the sweep of the rival Nationals on Sunday night. After two wild walk-off wins the first two games of the series, the Bravos will look for a more convention win this time around. This being said, it is September after all and all wins are created equal at the end of the day.

Mike Minor will make the start for Atlanta tonight. Minor has been terrific in recent months, pitching to the tune of a 2.64 ERA since July. He will be opposed by baseball's wins leader, Gio Gonzalez.

The Braves have released their lineup. Brian McCann is out as he deals with hamstring tendinitis, while Martin Prado has a couple of nagging injuries that he's been bothered by the last few weeks.

Braves:

Michael Bourn - CF
Reed Johnson - LF
Jason Heyward - RF
Chipper Jones - 3B
Freddie Freeman - 1B
Dan Uggla - 2B
David Ross - C
Andrelton Simmons - SS
Mike Minor - P

First pitch from Turner Field is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. ET. ESPN will have the broadcast.
