Braves vs. Giants Lineups: Chipper Jones Sits Game Two

The Atlanta Braves saw their seven-game losing streak snap on Tuesday, and now they'll face red-hot Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants in the second game of a three-game stint. The Giants have won four in a row and are pitching better than they have all season, so it'll be a big challenge for the Braves to get their bats going once again.

Chipper Jones is out of tonight's lineup. It appears it is simply just a night off for the 40-year-old third baseman. He'll be replaced by Juan Francisco. Here's the rest of the order for Atlanta:

Michael Bourn - CF
Martin Prado - LF
Jason Heyward - RF
Freddie Freeman - 1B
Brian McCann - C
Dan Uggla - 2B
Juan Francisco - 3B
Paul Janish - SS
Mike Minor - P

First pitch from Turner Field is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
