The Braves will roll their normal lineup out for Monday's series opener with the Nationals. Atlanta trails the Nats by five games in the NL East with about 40 games left in the season meaning the stakes in this three-game series are at an all-time high.

Here are the lineups for Monday's game. It starts at 7:05 p.m.

Braves:

Michael Bourn - CF
Martin Prado - LF
Jason Heyward - RF
Chipper Jones - 3B
Freddie Freeman - 1B
