The likely pitchers and starting lineups for the Atlanta Braves versus the Texas Rangers matchup on April 21st.

The Braves have showcased impressive performance lately, carrying their momentum into the weekend series against the Rangers. Their pitching has been solid, and the offense has come alive at crucial moments.

Leading the offensive charge is Braves catcher Travis d’Arnaud, who had a standout performance in the first game with three home runs, including a grand slam. He continued his strong play in the second game with two walks and another home run.

The entire Braves lineup has contributed, scoring a total of 13 runs on 14 hits across the two games. Marcell Ozuna had a notable streak of hitting in 17 consecutive games, which unfortunately came to an end in the second game.

Looking ahead to tonight’s game on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, the Braves aim to maintain their impressive form.

In terms of pitching matchups:
– Michael Lorenzen, with a 1-0 record and a 0.00 ERA, is set to start for the Braves. In his previous outing against the Detroit Tigers, he held them scoreless over five innings but struggled with control, walking five batters. He needs to be sharper against the Braves’ lineup.
– Darius Vines, boasting a 0-0 record and a 1.93 ERA, will take the mound for the Braves for the second time after a solid spot start against the Astros. Despite allowing one earned run over 4.2 innings in his last outing, he faces a tough challenge against the Rangers, who have yet to find their offensive rhythm in this series.
