Braves vs. Rockies Lineups: Martin Prado Sits Once Again With Flu-Like Symptoms

The Atlanta Braves are coming off a big 9-8 victory in extra innings on Friday night, cashing in on a key two-run homer from Eric Hinske in the 11th inning. They'll face the Rockies once again on Saturday evening at Coors field and will send Mike Minor to the mound. Despite a rough previous start, Minor has been excellent for Atlanta in 2012. The Rockies will counter with 49-year-old Jamie Moyer and his slow, slower and slowest fastball arsenal.

Martin Prado is sitting once again due to an illness. Here is the rest of the Atlanta lineup for tonight:

Michael Bourn CF
Chipper Jones 3B
Freddie Freeman 1B
Brian McCann C
Dan Uggla 2B
Matt Diaz LF
Jason Heyward RF
Tyler Pastornicky SS
Mike Minor P

First pitch from Colorado is set for 6:10 p.m., which is 8:10 ET.
