MLB comes to Citi Field where the New York Mets host NL East rival the Atlanta Braves.
The Atlanta Braves have enjoyed some success at Citi Field but have now dropped back to back contests following Tuesday’s 4-3 loss. The Braves late inning relief struggled and a solid outing from starter RA Dickey went for naught. Dickey gave the Bravos 6.2 frames with a pair of runs allowed on five hits before Sam Freeman and AJ Minter allowed runs in the 8th and 9th. Atlanta totaled eleven hits and three walks with Ozzie Albies and Nick Markakis driving in runs while Jace Peterson scored and recorded an RBI. Overall the Braves saw five players reach base at least twice. The Atlanta Braves have scheduled Sean Newcomb to take the hill at the New York Mets on Wednesday. Newcomb defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 last time out with both runs given up on four hits and two free passes over 5.1 innings of work.

The New York Mets haven’t had a whole lot to cheer about so Tuesday night’s late inning come from behind victory was satisfying. The Mets were very good on the mound with starter Rafael Montero giving up all three runs on eight hits and a pair of bases on balls through six innings of work for a no decision while three relievers put up zeros. New York did their damage on seven hits and a pair of walks with Kevin Plawecki clubbing a two run bomb while Travis Taijeron and Norichika Aoki knocked in a run each. Right hander Robert Gsellman toes the rubber for the New York Mets against the Atlanta Braves who he faces for the 5th time this year. Gsellman comes off of a 7-6 win (ND) versus the Washington Nationals with all six runs allowed on four hits and three BB over five frames.
The over is 23-8-2 in Atlanta last 33 Wednesday games. New York are 2-6 in their last 8 overall and New York are 2-6 in their last 8 games on grass while the over is 15-7 in New York last 22 Wednesday games.

Neither team has been the model of consistency and I don’t see that changing but for a pick I’ll go with the road dog…
