Braves vs. Phillies Lineup: Chipper Jones Returns, Jason Heyward Out Again

The Braves are looking to get back on track against the Phillies this evening with Tommy Hanson on the mound, but it will not come easily. Not only have the Phillies won the last eight meetings between the two clubs, but they'll also be sending Roy Halladay to the mound. Hardly an easy task for a Braves team that has suddenly struggled to score runs in recent days.

Here are the lineups for Tuesday night. The game will be played at Turner Field, with first pitch scheduled for 7:10 p.m.

Braves:

Michael Bourn CF
Martin Prado LF
Freddie Freeman 1B
Brian McCann C
Dan Uggla 2B
Chipper Jones 3B
Eric Hinske RF
Tyler Pastornicky SS
Tommy Hanson P

Phillies:

Jimmy Rollins SS
Placido Polanco 3B
Shane Victorino CF
Hunter Pence RF
Ty Wigginton 1B
Laynce Nix LF
Carlos Ruiz C
Freddy Galvis 2B
Roy Halladay P

We should be in for a great night of baseball, folks. If you're in the area, make your way on down to the ballpark this evening. Pitching matchups don't get much better than this one.
