Giants-Braves Preview

(AP) -- Buster Posey is a Georgia native playing his final series at Turner Field.

The San Francisco Giants star is expected back in the lineup Tuesday night as his team tries to even a four-game set with the Atlanta Braves.

Posey did not start Monday's 5-3 loss to open this series after starting 15 of the club's previous 17 games. He reached on an error in the ninth as a pinch-hitter, dropping his average to .397 in 19 career games at Turner Field, including two in the postseason. That's his highest mark in any NL park.
