The New York Mets look for another win at the expense of the Atlanta Braves Sunday.
The New York Mets are refusing to relinquish ground in the National League East. The Mets racked up their 9th win in eleven contests in Saturday’s 6-4 victory at Turner Field. Starter Noah Syndergaard allowed a run over seven frames before Tyler Clippard gave up three in an inning. The New Yorkers logged eleven hits and walked five times with Yoenis Cespedes smacking a two run bomb while Daniel Murphy scored twice. Left Hander Jon Niese makes his third start of the year against the Braves. Niese has struggled the past four time out with 24 runs plated on 23 hits and 12 BB over 19.2 innings.

The second half slide of the Atlanta Braves has yet to subside and whether it does is the question. Things did not improve Saturday and the Bravos were saddled with defeats in nine of eleven. Starter Williams Perez gave up three runs on eight hits through six frames before Edwin Jackson gave up one with Arodys Vizcaino allowing two more. The offense managed just four hits but one of those hits was a three run, pinch hit homer by Adonis Garcia. Rookie Ryan Weber makes his second career start against the visiting Mets on Sunday. Weber threw the ball well in his debut with a pair of runs allowed on four hits of a 5-0 loss at Philadelphia.
The over is 20-5-1 in the Mets last 26 road games and is 20-7 in their last 27 overall while the Mets are 20-7 in their last 27 road games. Atlanta are 1-10 in their last 11 home games and are 14-44 in their last 58 overall while going 14-42 in their last 56 games on grass. The over is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings. I was thinking Mets but perhaps the over instead…
