The Braves have won 22 straight games started by Kris Medlen, who will take the mound today. Medlen's only loss this season came in relief. The right- hander, in his first full season following Tommy John surgery, threw seven innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Tuesday.
The Braves have won Medlen's last 22 starts dating to 2010, increasing his franchise record. The major league record is 23 consecutive starts by the Yankees' Whitey Ford and the Giants' Carl Hubbell.
Medlen is 2-0 with a 1.82 ERA in 14 games (4 starts) all-time against the Mets.
It's also expected to be an emotional day for third baseman Chipper Jones, who will play his final regular season home game. Jones, who will retire following the playoffs, will head to Pittsburgh along with the rest of the Braves to finish the regular season.
The Braves trail the NL East-leading Washington Nationals by four games with four left to play.
Last night, Jason Heyward and Martin Prado each drove in a run and the Braves pitching staff blanked the Mets, 2-0.
Mike Minor (11-10) was nearly untouchable. He gave up just three hits over 6 1/3 innings while striking out four. Minor won for the fourth time this month and has given up just three runs over his last five starts. He's won five straight decisions.
