The Atlanta Braves take on the New York Mets in a Friday MLB matchup.
The Atlanta Braves rode their pitching to a 4-2 win at the Mets on Thursday night. Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz gave up both runs through six innings to up his record to 8-7.

The Braves did their damage on six hits and a trio of bases on balls with Johan Camargo ripping a two run double while Ronald Acuna had a pair of hits and scored twice.
The Braves give Friday’s start at the Mets to right hander Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez absorbed an 8-2 loss to the Dodgers last time out with five runs scoring on seven hits and two BB in 6.1 frames.
The New York Mets never got their offense going in Thursday’s defeat to the visiting Braves. New York starter Jason Vargas was charged with all four runs on six hits and three walks through six frames to get the loss.
The Mets offense consisted of six hits and a pair of bases on balls with Brandon Nimmo going deep while Luis Gullorme smacking a pinch hit RBI single that plated Jose Reyes.
The Mets have tabbed Jacob deGrom as Friday’s starter versus visiting Atlanta. DeGrom has thrown the ball well in back to back defeats where he has allowed a combined five earned runs plated through 15 innings.
Atlanta are 3-12 in their last 15 Friday games and over is 19-7 in Atlanta last 26 road games and Atlanta are 3-7 in their last 10 road games. NY Mets are 9-22 in their last 31 home games and are 3-7 in their last 10 Friday games and are 18-39 in their last 57 games on grass. Atlanta are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings and Atlanta are 13-5 in the last 18 meetings in New York.
The logical thing to do is back deGrom and hope for support but I'd rather hope for the nice odds...
