Riley makes first start at hot corner as Braves go for sweep

The Braves are making a few changes to their recent defensive arrangement and lineup for today’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers:

Austin Riley makes his first start at third base, in place of Josh Donaldson. Johan Camargo will take over in left field. With Donaldson’s absence, both Nick Markakis and Riley move up a slot in the order to hit fourth and fifth, respectively, while Camargo slots in at sixth. Suffice to say, the Braves have not yet used this arrangement this year.

For the Brewers, Jesus Aguilar and Ryan Braun will take a spot on the bench.
