Preview:

The Mets (8-8) were shell shocked to say the least, at home against Aaron Harang and the Atlanta Braves (11-5) as they one hit them in a 6-0 Braves win.

The Mets look to bounce back with RHP Bartolo Colon on the mound, who is 4-0 with a 1.20 ERA vs the Braves. The current Braves hitters are hitting .228 vs Colon in their careers. B.J. Upton, who was in the American League, has 29 career AB's vs Colon and is batting .308 with 1 HR and 5 RBI's.. Colon got his first win vs the Braves on April 8th in a 4-0 win. He went 7 innings, giving up 6 hits,  while K'ing 5. His last time out he was bothered by a bad back and only went 5 innings in a 14-2 loss in Anaheim...

The New York Mets. will have to face the Hot RHP Ervin Santana, who is 2-0 with 0.64 ERA. His 2014 numbers are similar at 1-0 with a 0.64 ERA. His first appearance in Braves uniform he faced the Mets at home going 8 innings in a 4-3 win.  His last start was in Philly (April 14th) going 6 innings, giving up 4 hits, 1 earned run, and struck out 11 Phillies in a No decision 9-6 win. The current Mets combined are batting only .218 vs Santana. Curtis Granderson, who has seen a lot of him is batting .256 (11 for 43) with 5 HR's and 9 RBI's. Leadoff hitter Eric Young Jr. is batting .429 (3 for 7) off Santana...

The Mets will have to grind this one out and see if Sir Bart's Back can hold down the hot hitting Braves..
