Johan Camargo returns to third base in final game of Phillies series

Johan Camargo returns to third base in final game of Phillies series

After being replaced by Ryan Flaherty for a night in order to play the matchups, Johan Camargo will be back at third base for tonight’s game. The lineups for tonight’s pivotal rubber match between the Braves and Phillies have been released, so let’s take a look at what each team is going to look like tonight, shall we? Of course, we’re going to start with a look at the Braves and they’ve made a couple of changes compared to what we saw last night. Luiz Gohara makes his first start of the season tonight in Philly! #ChopOnGame Preview: https://t.co/ycVOE66IkR...

Flaherty back in lineup, will try to vanquish Velaszquez again

Aside from Flowers, the Braves are sticking with a similar arrangement for Game Two. Put this in the “fairly predictable” category: after losing his starting spot to Jose Bautista and then Johan Camargo, Ryan Flaherty is back in the lineup tonight, probably because he hit a three-run homer off of Vince Velasquez that delivered a win for the Braves earlier this season. Here’s the lineup itself: First pitch at 7:05 ET tonight in Philadelphia! #ChopOnGame Preview: https://t.co/9aVmVyXprl pic.twitter.com/o11Mt0DSLO— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) May 22, 2018 Tyler Flowers appears to be...
