The Atlanta Braves seem to have found themselves a pretty standard lineup whenever their normal starters are all playing, and that lineup will be in place once again on Friday night against Jaime Garcia and the Cardinals. Chipper Jones is playing his fourth consecutive game for the first time all season. Jason Heyward continues to bat seventh despite having better numbers than just about anyone on the team.
Here are the complete lineups for Friday evening. First pitch is scheduled for 8:25 p.m. ET following a ceremony for Tony LaRussa.
This series has the potential to be a great one, something typically pretty rare for May. The Braves and Cardinals feature two of the best offenses in the game, so it will come down to the pitching staffs this weekend.
