Atlanta will try to grab a series split this evening as they wrap up a four game slate with the Friars. After a cult classic walk-off on Friday night, the bravos bats have struggled to find that big hit in the two middle games of this series. Dylan Dodd will try to keep the line moving and earn his second MLB win after holding a potent Cardinals lineup to one run earlier this week. Here is how the Braves will line up tonight.

Atlanta’s depth is truly being testing in the early goings of the 2023 season and tonight they will try to remain the only National League East team with 6+ wins in 2023. Sean Murphy will be behind the plate after Travis d’Arnaud was placed on the 7-Day concussion IL and Chawick Tromp was recalled to Atlanta. The rest of the lineup looks par for the course considering all of the injuries plaguing the club.

Seth Lugo will be the adversary trying to earn his second win as well but hopefully the Braves have a good book on him being passed around the clubhouse. Atlanta has had success against Lugo in his time coming out of the bullpen with the Mets and the Braves bats will need to bounce back in a big way to split the series in this potential NLCS matchup. I expect just that.

This game will be the featured Sunday Night Baseball matchup on ESPN. First pitch is at 7:10 pm ET. Apologies for the short preview. There’s a lot to enjoy today between Easter, The Masters and of course, Atlanta Braves Baseball. Enjoy!
