The Braves are in town, sending Max Fried to the mound in game one of the series. Countering is Jhoulys Chacin, with Tyler Saladino back in the starting lineup in his first game back from the DL. Meanwhile, Eric Thames gets the night off as Jesus Aguilar starts at first and Ryan Braun is in left field. Jonathan Villar gets the leadoff spot for tonight. Here are the rest of the lineups.
