Braves vs. Reds Lineups: Chipper Jones Out Again With Ankle Injury

Following a rough series opener against the Reds, the Atlanta Braves are rolling out the same lineup on Tuesday night as they did on Monday. That means no Chipper Jones, who has been out since Saturday with a badly bruised ankle. Jones took a well-struck line drive off the ankle while playing in at third base and has had swelling and a contusion near his ankle bone ever since.

Juan Francisco, who was responsible for Atlanta's lone run in game one with a solo homer, will be playing third and batting seventh.

Here is the rest of the batting order for the Braves and Reds.

Atlanta:

Michael Bourn - CF
Martin Prado - LF
Freddie Freeman - 1B
Dan Uggla - 2B
Brian McCann - C
Jason Heyward - RF
Juan Francisco - 3B
Tyler Pastornicky - SS
Brandon Beachy - SP

Cincinnati:

Zack Cozart SS
Drew Stubbs CF
Joey Votto 1B
Brandon Phillips 2B
Jay Bruce RF
Chris Heisey LF
Miguel Cairo 3B
Ryan Hanigan C
Mat Latos P

This is Beachy's first start since throwing a complete game shutout against Miami last week, and all eyes will be on the young righty as he looks to continue his phenomenal season thus far. First pitch from Great American Ballpark is set for 7:10 p.m. ET.
