Sunday's Mets-Braves lineups

NEW YORK -- Here are the lineups for Sunday afternoon's 1:10 p.m. ET game at Citi Field, as the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves close out a three-game series:


Jason Heyward, rf

B.J. Upton, cf

Freddie Freeman, 1b

Justin Upton, lf

Chris Johnson, 3b

Dan Uggla, 2b

Andrelton Simmons, ss

Gerald Laird, c

David Hale, rhp


Eric Young Jr., lf

Curtis Granderson, rf

David Wright, 3b

Daniel Murphy, 2b

Chris Young, cf

Lucas Duda, 1b

Anthony Recker, c

Omar Quintanilla, ss

Zack Wheeler, rhp

Manager Terry Collins moved struggling Curtis Granderson out of the cleanup spot, choosing to bat him second because Granderson has had more success there in his career. Collins decided against moving Lucas Duda to cleanup, saying that he didn't want to overwhelm Duda in the same week where the Mets cleared out first base for him by trading Ike Davis to the Pirates.
