The Atlanta Braves look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Braves have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Braves have won six of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs. Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman have combined for 152 hits and 62 RBI while Cameron Maybin has 33 RBI. The Atlanta Braves have won four of their last six home games. Williams Perez takes the hill, and he’s 3-0 with a 2.29 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. This will be Perez’s second career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 4-9 in their last 13 games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series. The Braves are 5-0 in their last 5 Saturday games. The Mets are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Mets are a way different team on the road, as they've been fade material for much of the season away from home. That doesn't change here with Perez on the hill, who has been solid pretty much all year.
