Atlanta Braves Vs. Houston Astros: Starting Lineups Announced

On Tuesday night, the Atlanta Braves notched their first win of the 2012 season. On Wednesday night, the Braves will look to beat the Astros again -- and in the process, take the series against Houston.

Both managers have announced their starting lineups for Wednesday night's game, and here's who fans will be watching on Wednesday night in Minute Maid Park:

Atlanta Braves
Michael Bourn, CF
Martin Prado, LF
Freddie Freeman, 1B
Chipper Jones, 3B
Dan Uggla, 2B
Jason Heyward, RF
David Ross, C
Jack Wilson, SS
Randall Delgado, SP

Houston Astros
Jordan Schafer, CF
Jose Altuve, 2B
J.D. Martinez, LF
Carlos Lee, 1B
Travis Buck, RF
Chris Johnson, 3B
Jason Castro, C
Marwin Gonzalez, SS
Wandy Rodriguez, SP

With the lefty Rodriguez on the mound for the Astros, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has opted to give Brian McCann a day off -- which is an opportune time to get McCann extra rest, with Thursday being a travel day.
