Braves Unveil Their Best Lineup Of The Season

The Braves are preparing for one of the best pitchers in baseball tonight. Why not go with the best lineup, right?

After weeks and weeks of Fredi Gonzalez putting out a batting order that did not utilize this team's true talent at the plate, he finally got it right. Chipper Jones is playing, Martin Prado is playing, and, most of all, Jason Heyward is playing.

Michael Bourn - CF
Martin Prado - LF
Brian McCann - C
Dan Uggla - 2B
Freddie Freeman - 1B
Chipper Jones - 3B
Jason Heyward - RF
Alex Gonzalez - SS
Mike Minor - P

Tonight's game against the Giants and Tim Lincecum is huge. While there are no must-wins in August, the momentum taken from this series could have a big impact on the race the rest of the way. Braves win, they're six games up in the wildcard and head into a big series against the Diamondbacks with momentum. Braves lose, they're only four games up and have lost four out of their last six games.

Let's all hope for a win.
