The New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves will finish up their MLB series on Thursday.

In the Tuesday opener, the Braves secured a 5-3 win. On Wednesday, Atlanta kept it going with a 6-4 victory.

For the Thursday game, the Mets will send out Marcus Stroman in the start. This year over 135.0 innings and a 6-11 record, Stroman has a 3.20 ERA with 111 Ks and 40 walks.

The Mets put up 12 hits on Wednesday but couldn’t score until the seventh inning. Amed Rosario led the way on four hits, an RBI and a run.

Over on the Braves’ side, they’re going with Julio Teheran on Thursday to start. Across 137.0 innings and a 7-7 mark so far, Teheran has a 3.35 ERA with 126 Ks and 63 BBs.

Atlanta logged eight hits on Wednesday, riding a big five-run seventh to the eventual win.

The Mets are 7-1 in their last eight in game three of a series and the under is 3-0-1 in their last four Thursday games. The over is 7-3 in New York’s last 10 in game three of a series as well.

Meanwhile, the Braves are 6-2 in Teheran’s last eight starts and 5-1 in his last six with five days’ rest. Atlanta is 6-2 in Teheran’s last eight starts on grass and 17-5 in his last 22 in game three of a series.

Stroman has gone into a bit of a lull in his two no-decisions since joining the Mets. Over that stretch he hasn’t been awful—with seven earned in 10.1 innings—but he’s given up five walks and 16 hits.

As for Teheran, he’s been cruising along pretty well with five quality starts in his last seven outings. He’s also 2-0 over his last three appearances and should be in control here. I’m going Braves.
