The outfield moves a bit along with the lineup. SS Dansby Swanson will replace Soler as the leadoff hitter. Joc Pederson moves from LF to RF while Adam Duvall moves from CF to RF and Guillermo Heredia enters the lineup in CF.

The Braves lead the best-of-5 series 2-1 entering Game 4 on Tuesday night. Atlanta will pitch Charlie Morton, who started Game 1 of the series, striking out 9 batters in 6 IP. Eric Lauer is starting for the Brewers, who will likely dip into the rest of their pitching staff if the game gets out of hand on the brink of elimination.
