Preview: Game 89 - Braves at Mets - Minor vs Matsuzaka


Preview: Games 89
Atlanta Braves (49-39) at New York Mets (39-49)

Pitching Probables:
Mike Minor (2-5, 4.73 ERA) vs Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-3, 3.72 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 7:10 PM

Preview:

The Atlanta Braves (49-39) had won nine straight before a 3-1 home loss Sunday to Arizona. B.J. Upton was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts to end a career-best hitting streak at 11 games, and the Braves had no extra-base hits after seven of their 14 went for extras in Saturday's 10-4 victory.

They also totaled 12 hits in a 5-2 series-opening win Friday.

Atlanta has also won 14 of 21 away from home, 12 of 18 at Citi Field and has fared well against Matsuzaka (3-3, 3.72 ERA).

The right-hander gave up five runs for the second straight outing Tuesday, yielding seven hits over five innings in a 5-4 loss to the Braves.

He's 1/3 with a 9.00 ERA in four career starts versus Atlanta, lasting five or fewer innings in each of the last three.

He gave up three of those runs Tuesday with two outs in the fourth inning.

Freddie Freeman and Andrelton Simmons are each 3 for 7 against him. Freeman has also hit .407 with 18 RBIs in his last 15 matchups with the Mets, while Simmons has five straight multihit games overall.

New York (39-49) beat Texas 8-4 on Sunday for just its third win in 11 games. Anthony Recker's three-run homer keyed a five-run first for the Mets, who also scored three first-inning runs in Friday's 6-5 victory.

Ruben Tejada was 2 for 3 and added some cushion to the margin with an eighth-inning RBI.

The Mets will face Mike Minor (2-5, 4.73), who is 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA in eight outings since last winning on May 19. The left-hander, whose ERA is the worst on the team, allowed four runs and nine hits over 4 1/3 innings opposite Matsuzaka and left without a decision.

He's 4-2 with a 5.14 ERA in 10 career starts against New York.

Tejada is 8 for 21 against him while Juan Lagares is 4 for 8.

Rookie Eric Campbell is 13 for 28 during a seven-game hitting streak and went 4 for 12 with six strikeouts in last week's series.

David Wright was 0 for 4, ending his hitting streak at 11 games a day after returning from a shoulder injury. He hit .407 in six games versus Atlanta earlier this year.

The Braves' bullpen has limited opponents to just four runs over the last 15 games, spanning 34 2/3 innings.

Atlanta, which swept last week's three-game set, leads the season series 6-3.

Preview: Game 84 - #Mets at Braves - Matsuzaka vs Minor


Preview: Game 84
New York Mets (37-46) at Atlanta Braves (45-38)

Probable Pitchers:
Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-2, 3.23 ERA) vs Mike Minor (2-5, 4.50 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM

Preview:

Evan Gattis is headed for the disabled list, but the Atlanta Braves might be on their way to their longest winning streak of the season.

The New York Mets (37-46) didn't look capable of stopping them in the opener of this three-game series.

The Braves attempt to capitalize on another meeting with the sputtering Mets as they aim for a sixth straight win Tuesday night.

In his first season as Atlanta's regular catcher, Gattis is hitting .290 while tying Justin Upton with a team-high 16 homers, but a bulging thoracic disk in his back has him slated to hit the disabled list Tuesday.

Gattis has been out of the lineup since Friday, but so far the Braves (45-38) have done just fine without him as rookie Christian Bethancourt and veteran Gerald Laird have filled in. Atlanta needed a little help to keep the streak going Monday, though, taking advantage of three New York errors in the eighth inning to score four runs and rally for a 5-3 win.

Freddie Freeman has a .423 average with 17 RBIs in his last 13 meetings with the Mets. The first baseman did plenty of damage without even getting a hit Monday, going 0 for 1 with three walks -- one with the bases loaded that scored Bethancourt -- and driving in another run on a sacrifice fly.

He's 2 for 4 with a double and a homer off Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-2, 3.23 ERA), who gets the ball for New York.

Mike Minor (2-5, 4.50) wouldn't mind seeing that type of production since he's 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA in his last four starts. He allowed five runs in six innings of his latest, a 6-1 loss at Houston on Thursday, with the big blow coming on a three-run homer in the fifth -- the 11th Minor has allowed this season.

The left-hander has allowed 1.50 homers per nine innings this season -- 126th of 135 pitchers to make at least 10 starts.

Minor gave up three solo homers and one other run in six innings of a 4-3 home loss when he last faced the Mets on June 20, 2013.

New York has dropped five of six behind a 6.00 ERA from the rotation, and one of those suspect starts came from Matsuzaka.

The right-hander was hammered at Pittsburgh on Thursday, surrendering five runs, five hits and four walks while hitting a batter in six innings of a 5-2 loss.

Matsuzaka's only visit to Turner Field was even worse, as he gave up six runs in three innings of a 13-5 defeat Sept. 2. He's 1-2 with a 9.00 ERA in three career starts against the Braves.

With the limited numbers accumulated, Jason Bay has good number off Mike Minor. Not only that, Jason Bay hits Lefties better, but most righties do. Today might be his day to break out, we will see!

The Mets are batting collectively .293 (12 for 41) and I am sure we will see Hairston and Turner get a shot at the lefty today.. LGM!
