Atlanta Braves Vs. Washington Nationals: Saturday's Lineups Announced

After dropping the first of a three-game set to the Washington Nationals on Friday night, the Atlanta Braves are looking to bounce back Saturday afternoon at Turner Field.

They'll have their work cut out for them however. Mike Minor is on the bump for the Braves and frankly, that's a little unnerving. Minor has an ERA north of six and is going against one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball.

Stephen Strasburg will look to shutdown a potent Atlanta attack, which looks much different than Friday's.

Without further adieu, the Braves lineup:

1. Michael Bourn (L) CF

2. Martin Prado (R) LF

3. Jason Heyward (L) RF

4. Freddie Freeman (L) 1B

5. Dan Uggla (R) 2B

6. Brian McCann (L) C

7. Andrelton Simmons (R) SS

8. Juan Francisco (L) 3B

9. Mike Minor (R) P

And for the visiting Nationals:

1. Danny Espinosa (S) 2B

2. Bryce Harper (L) CF

3. Ryan Zimmerman (R) 3B

4. Michael Morse (R) RF

5. Adam LaRoche (L) 1B

6. Ian Desmond (R) SS

7. Tyler Moore (R) LF

8. Jesus Flores (R) C

9. Stephen Strasburg (R) P
