After picking up a 9-7 win yesterday, the New York Mets will try to close out a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves with a split. The Mets got off to a slow start with a pair of blowout losses in the first 2 games of the four-game set, but they bounced back with a Wednesday, making this game a very exciting one to watch.
New York’s offense has been incredible this season, ranked fifth in the MLB in batting average at .258. Shortstop Francisco Lindor leads the team with 120 hits, while first baseman Pete Alonso has hit a team-high 29 home runs. They will be facing an Atlanta pitching staff that ranks sixth in the majors with an ERA of 3.62.
Atlanta looked as if it was going to be on its way to not competing in the NL East when it dropped five games in a six-game stretch against the Mets and Phillies earlier this month. The Braves immediately responded by rattling off an eight-game winning streak that included the two wins over New York to open this series.
Max Fried is returning from the 7-day injured list to start for the Atlanta Braves for the 23rd time. He is holding a 10-4 record with a 2.60 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over 138.1 innings pitched while striking out 127. He has made 3 starts since the All-Star break, posting a 2.37 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 19 innings.
The New York Mets reply back with Jacob Degrom, who is making his 4th start of the season. The 34-year-old allowed 2 hits and no walks across 6 shutout innings against Philadelphia in his last start. deGrom has now made 3 starts during his injury-shortened season, posting a 1.62 ERA in 16.2 innings.
