Braves Vs Rockies Lineups: Atlanta Sending Out Mike Minor To Pitch

The Atlanta Braves are looking to rebound after a 6-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies they suffered on Tuesday night. The Braves are trying to create some breathing room in the N.L. wild card spot, and a win against the lowly Rockies is a way to achieve that.

Mike Minor is getting the start for the Braves, this year he has struggled with a 7-10 record and an ERA of 4.79. This will be Minor's second start against the Rockies, the last being all the way back on May 5. In that game Minor played poorly by giving up eight runs in only five innings of work.

The Braves also have mixed up their lineup from Tuesday with Jose Constanza playing left field and batting eighth, Dan Uggla is back in the lineup at second base after getting a night off and Brian McCann will be behind the plate and will be hitting sixth in the lineup.

Braves lineup:

1. Michael Bourn CF
2. Martin Prado SS
3. Jason Heyward RF
4. Chipper Jones 3B
5. Freddie Freeman 1B
6. Brian McCann C
7. Dan Uggla 2B
8. Jose Constanza LF
9. Mike Minor P

Rockies lineup:
