Braves vs. Cubs Lineups: Brian McCann Sits Against Tough Lefty

The Atlanta Braves are looking to win consecutive games for the first time in a week, and they'll turn to one of their struggling young pitchers in order to do so. Randall Delgado started off the season nicely, but he's fallen apart in recent weeks and might be pitching to save his job with Ben Sheets now waiting in the wings.

The Braves will use a similar lineup to the one that scored 10 runs on Tuesday evening, although Brian McCann will get the night off against a tough lefty-handed pitcher in Paul Maholm. Here's tonight's lineup:

Michael Bourn - CF
Martin Prado - 3B
Jason Heyward - RF
Chipper Jones - 3B
Freddie Freeman - 1B
Dan Uggla - 2B
David Ross - C
Andrelton Simmons - SS
Randall Delgado - P

And here is the Cubs lineup:

First pitch from Turner Field is set for 7:10 p.m. ET. There will be a fireworks show after the game.
