Braves vs. Marlins Lineups: Matt Diaz Starts Against Lefty Mark Buehrle

The Atlanta Braves will look to sweep their first ever visit to new Marlins Park on Thursday night. They will send struggling lefty Mike Minor to the mound, although he could benefit from the spacious outfield. Miami will counter with veteran southpaw Mark Buehrle, who gave the Braves all kinds of problems a few weeks ago at Turner Field.

Fredi Gonzalez has gone with a pretty similar lineup for tonight's game, although he has gone back to the pitcher hitting ninth with Jose Constanza out of the lineup. Matt Diaz has been inserted into the order to help against Buehrle.

Here is the rest of the batting order for Thursday:

Michael Bourn - CF
Martin Prado - 3B
Brian McCann - C
Dan Uggla - 2B
Matt Diaz - LF
Jason Heyward - RF
Eric Hinske - 1B
Andrelton Simmons - SS
Mike Minor - P

First pitch in Miami is set for 7:10 p.m. ET.
