The battered Braves will still be without their star second baseman.
We are mere hours away from the rubber game of the series between the Braves and Cubs. The Braves have been dealing with a myriad of injuries during the early portion of this season with Ozzie Albies being the latest casualty after getting hit on the calf by a pitch. He hasn’t been placed on the injured list, but it looks like the Braves will be without his services today. Ehire Adrianza gets the start at second for Atlanta.
Here is how the Braves will line up.

For the Cubs, they go with Kyle Hendricks on the mound. Joc Pederson gets the start in left field for Chicago against Bryse Wilson and many of their usual suspects, including Braves’ slayer Willson Contreras, remain in the lineup.
