Braves vs. Giants: Teams Set Lineups For Game Two

After last night's thrilling victory, the Braves and Giants will continue their four-game series this evening in Atlanta. There are a few changes for each team, with the main ones being the lack of Jason Heyward and the addition of Chipper Jones. Carlos Beltran was placed on the disabled list Tuesday afternoon and he will not be available for any of the remaining games.

Braves:

Michael Bourn (CF)
Martin Prado (LF)
Brian McCann (C)
Dan Uggla (2B)
Freddie Freeman (1B)
Chipper Jones (3B)
Alex Gonzalez (SS)
Jose Constanza (RF)
Randall Delgado (P)

Giants:

Cody Ross (CF)
Mike Fontenot (2B)
Pablo Sandoval (1B)
Aubrey Huff (LF)
Brandon Belt (RF)
Orlando Cabrera (SS)
Miguel Tejada (3B)
Chris Stewart (C)
Jonathan Sanchez (P)

Not exactly the toughest lineup for Delgado to face later tonight, but as we all saw Monday they can surprise you and score some runs. As for the Braves approach at the plate, Sanchez throws hard and strikes a lot of batters out, though he does walk quite a few as well. Wait on him and aim to stretch him out in the early innings. The Giants bullpen is pretty banged up and not nearly at full-strength.

First pitch is set for 7:10EDT.
