Braves vs. Cardinals Lineups: Freddie Freeman Returns With Sports Glasses

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has received his customized sports glasses in time for Wednesday night's game with the Cardinals, and after a bit of pleading with manager Fredi Gonzalez he has been inserted into the lineup. Freeman will bat fifth for the Braves.

Jose Constanza will make another start in left field and will bat seventh tonight after hitting ninth on Tuesday. Jack Wilson is also starting in place of Tyler Pastornicky as he usually does when Tim Hudson takes the mound.

Here is the rest of the Atlanta batting order:

Michael Bourn CF
Martin Prado 3B
Brian McCann C
Dan Uggla 2B
Freddie Freeman 1B
Jason Heyward RF
Jose Constanza LF
Jack Wilson SS
Tim Hudson P

And the Cardinals:

Rafael Furcal SS
Skip Schumaker RF
Matt Holliday LF
Yadier Molina C
Matt Adams 1B
Tyler Greene 2B
Daniel Descalso 3B
Shane Robinson CF
Kyle Lohse P

First pitch from Turner Field is set for 7:10 p.m. EDT as Atlanta looks to win their first series in nearly 10 days.
