Mets Vs. Braves Lineups: Chipper Jones In Lineup Hitting Third

Today's Braves lineup from manager Fredi Gonzalez once again has Chipper Jones hitting third against Mets right-hander Dillon Gee. Jones homered in his Turner Field debut on Sunday after sitting out two games with swelling in his knee. Jack Wilson will get the start for Atlanta at shortstop in place of rookie Tyler Pastornicky who is off to a tough start batting .136. Wilson is looking for his first hit of the season after going hitless in his first seven at-bats.
