Preview:

The Mets (8-9), who have dropped the last two games to the Atlanta Braves (12-5) look to rebound in the final game of the three games series. The Mets have been woeful at home this season only going 2-6.

The Mets will send Zack Wheeler (1-2) to the mound, who has pitched better of late. Last Game vs Arizona on April 14th he pitched 6.1 innings, giving up 6 hits, 2 ER, 3 BB's, while striking out 3. He is 3-1 with a 3.80 ERA vs the Braves in his short career. The current Braves are collectively batting .236 with 3 HR's and 7 RBI's vs Wheeler. Freddie Freeman is batting .556 (5 for 9) with a HR and 3 RBI's vs Wheeler. Other Notables: Jason Heyward .333 (3 for 9) 1 HR, 2 RBI's, Dan Uggla .286 (2 for 7) with a HR, 2 RBI's, Andrelton Simmons .333 (3 for 9) with 3 BB's vs Wheeler.

The Mets will be getting their second look at young David Hale (0-0). The Mets faced him his last time out and he only lasted (6.23 ERA) 4.1 innings, gave up 5 hits, 3 earned runs, walking 5, while striking out 2. The Mets ended up winning the game 6-4. Eric Young went 3 for 3 , David Wright went 1 for 2, and Daniel Murphy also went 1 for 2 in their last meeting vs Hale.

The Mets bats better start to get going or else it could mean another sweep in the hands of the Atlanta Braves.
