Walker Buehler makes his third start of the season as the Dodgers try for an eighth straight win on Tuesday night against the Braves, who send left-hander Max Fried to the mound. Both pitchers also started on opening day.

Hanser Alberto gets a start at third base, with his career 113 wRC+ (.331/.352/.458 in 480 plate appearances) against southpaws. It’s the second start of the season for Alberto.

Gavin Lux was scratched with back tightness about 90 minutes before game time.
