Lineups in Atlanta

Fredi has been tinkering with the No. 2 spot in the lineup lately. He started Luis Gonzalez there Tuesday and gave Jeremy Hermida the night off. Hermida will probably get at least two nights off in Atlanta, because Gonzalez will get a start Wednesday against lefty Mike Hampton. Gonzo is 14 for 39 (.359) with five homers and 13 RBI against Hampton.

Paul Lo Duca didn’t start Tuesday but he will be the starting catcher Wednesday, because he also has good numbers against Hampton. Lo Duca is a career .370 hitter (10 for 27) hitter against Hampton.

            It’s not exactly Hot-lanta today. There were storms passing through this morning, and more on the way, but team officials said they felt they could get the game in tonight. Neither team took batting practice on the field.

            Here are the lineups for the first of three for the Marlins and the team formerly known as the Braves.
