The Atlanta Braves are looking to get back on track this weekend in beautiful Colorado as they take on the Rockies for three games. With an offense that has been in a funk over the course of the last week or so, you can bet the players are looking forward to a couple of games in hitter-friendly Coors Field.
Atlanta is currently in a stretch of playing 33 games in 34 days, so resting guys is crucial in order to keep everyone refreshed on the diamond. On Friday night, Martin Prado will get the game off. Eric Hinske will handle left field, and Chipper Jones will move up and bat in Prado's customary No. 2 spot in the lineup. Here are the lineups for tonight:
First pitch is set for 8:40 ET this evening.
