New York at Atlanta Game Preview
The Mets have been in a free fall with just four wins in their last 19 games. Interestingly enough, two of those victories came against Atlanta in a four-game road series to close out the month of May. New York is 3-7 in its first 10 games of the season series against the Braves. After losing two of three road games in this past weekend’s Subway Series against the New York Yankees, the Mets are 28-34 overall with a 15-13 record on the road.
Zack Wheeler is expected to get this two-game NL East tilt underway as New York’s starter for Tuesday night. The right hander has had his issues this season with a 4.57 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP through 11 previous trips to the mound, but he did hold Baltimore scoreless on three hits last Wednesday in seven full innings pitched.
Atlanta has lost its last two series against San Diego and the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road, but at 37-28 overall, it is still tied with Washington for the lead in the division title race. The Braves are 16-12 at SunTrust Park this season with the total staying UNDER BetAnySports’ closing line in their last five home games. After splitting the four games against the Mets at home in late May, they took three of four from the Nationals in their last home stand.
Mike Foltynewicz is expected to lick off this upcoming six-game homestand as Atlanta’s starter for Tuesday night. This will be the right hander’s 14th start of the season and he comes in at 5-4 with a 2.31 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. He did get tagged with the loss last Wednesday against San Diego after allowing two earned runs on five hits in five innings pitched. The Braves lost that game 3-1.

New York’s struggles lately show no real signs of letting up with issues at the plate and on the mound. Wheeler looked pretty good in his last start, but the overall edge goes to Atlanta at home on Tuesday night.
