Game Preview: Carlos Gonzalez back in action

Yohan Flande will get the start for the Rockies

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off a rare victory yesterday, the Rockies have a chance to make it a streak with a win tonight. Yohan Flande, the surprisingly effective lefty, is getting the start for the Rox. Carlos Gonzalez, after sitting yesterday with a sore knee, is back in action in his customary three-hole.

Shelby Miller gets the start for the Braves. He came over in the Jason Heyward trade in the offseason, and has pitched like an ace. He owns a 2.50 ERA at the moment.

DJ LeMahieu is hitting fourth. He has hit well this year, but wow: DJ LeMahieu, clean-up hitter. Nolan Arenado is getting a rare day off.
