The Houston Astros will be sending out Lucas Harrell to go out and pitch against the Atlanta Braves. Harrell has been one of the few bright spots for the Astros pitching staff and could cause some issues for the Braves. Since the All-Star break Harell has gone 1-1 in four starts but he has an ERA of 1.82. This will also be Harrell's first career start against the Braves.
Justin Maxwell is back in the lineup after getting the night off and he will bat fifth and play centerfield for the Astros. Also, Matt Downs returns to play third base, and he will be batting seventh.
