Twins Vs. Braves, Spring Training: Braves Wrap Up Spring Training With Brandon Beachy Starting

After an exciting, walkoff finish against the Twins Tuesday, in which Mauro Gomez hit a game-winning home run in the 10th inning, the Braves return to action against Minnesota Wednesday in the final Spring Training game. Game time is scheduled for 12:05.

Braves Lineup:
1. Martin Prado, 3B
2. Nate McLouth, CF
3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
4. Eric Hinske, DH
5. Brooks Conrad, 2B
6. J.C. Boscan, C
7. Matt Young, LF
8. Joe Mather, RF
9. Brandon Hicks, SS
Brandon Beachy, SP

Twins Lineup:
1. Denard Span, CF
2. Tsuyoshi Nishioka, 2B
3. Justin Morneau, 1B
4. Jim Thome, DH
5. Delmon Young, LF
6. Michael Cuddyer, RF
7. Danny Valencia, 3B
8. Drew Butera, C
9. Alexi Casilla, SS
Scott Baker, SP

The Braves are using a makeshift lineup of role players and fringe players in the final tuneup of 2011. Only Prado, McLouth and Freeman are the regulars in the lineup, as well as Beachy, who was named the fifth starter.

After those four, the players in the lineup who will be on the 25-man roster are Hinske, Conrad, Young and Hicks.

Rodrigo Lopez is scheduled to throw after Beachy, supposedly around four innings for each.

The Twins are using a more normal lineup in the spring finale, throwing most of the regulars in the starting order. A few, such as Morneau, seem to be needing it as they have had less than stellar springs. Baker is on the mound for the Twins.
