Braves shake up lineup, to bat P Harang 8th
ESPN 69+ SHARES
Looking to shake up his run-challenged team, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez decided on something drastic.
Pitcher Aaron Harang was batting eighth for Monday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Second baseman Ramiro Pena took the ninth spot in the order for Atlanta, which also switched around brothers B.J. and Justin Upton.
The Braves were mired in a six-game losing streak, their longest in two years.
But, even with the Braves still clinging to first in the NL East, the offense has been a season-long issue.
