Atlanta Braves (12-5) at New York Mets (8-9)
Pitching Probables - David Hale (0-0) 2.89 ERA vs Zack Wheeler (1-2) 4.67 ERA
TV - WPIX 11 - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 1:10PM

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.

Pitching Probables - Ervin Santana (1-0) 0.64 ERA vs Bartolo Colon (1-2) 6.00 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 7:10pm

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..

The New York Mets (8-7) will come home to Citi Field to face the first place Atlanta Braves (10-5) in a three game series. Both Teams have been playing well of late, the Mets have won 3 in a row to finish a 6-3 road trip and the Braves have won 5 out of last 6. The Mets are 2-4 at home this season, while the Braves are 6-3 on the road.

The Mets will open up with Jon Niese, who pitched on April 12th against the Angels and got the no decision. Good News is Niese pitched 7.1 innings, gave up 6 hits, and only giving up 3 earned runs. Niese is 6-2 with a 3.62 ERA vs the Braves in his career. The current Braves combined have given Jon some fits batting .333 (52 for 156) with 4 HR's and 26 RBI's.

Preview: 

The New York Mets (7-7) look to sweep the series over the horrendous Arizona Diamondbacks (4-13). Dillon Gee will look to rebound from his last start against the Angels on April 11th. Gee only went five innings, giving 6 hits and 4 earned runs. He got the no decision. The D'backs that have faced him are only hitting .215 off Gee. Gee is 1-1 with a 3.75 ERA vs the D'Backs in his career.

The D'backs will counter with Brandon McCarthy on the hill vs the Mets. McCarthy is 0-1 with a 2.57 ERA vs the Mets. The Mets that have faired against him are collectively batting .235 (35 AB's) with 1 HR. McCarthy has been prone to the Homer Run ball as he has given up 5 HR's in three games. Curtis Granderson is the only Mets with 14 AB's vs McCarthy and is batting .143 vs him. The D'Backs are 1-10 at Home and have lost 5 in a row.. In his last start, McCarthy  pitched 7 innings, giving up 10 hits, 6 earned runs vs the Dodgers (April 11th). He got the Loss (6-0)...

TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - 9:40 PM

Preview:

The Mets (6-7) look to get to the .500 mark for the first time this season. They will face veteran starter Bronson Arroyo, who signed as a free agent this offseason. The D'Back have dropped 4 in a row (4-12).

Arroyo, who played for Cincinnati for years is 8-3 with a 3.63 ERA vs the Mets in his career. The current Mets combined have hit .273 (30 for 110) with 3 HR's and 7 RBI's. Daniel Murphy has owned Arroyo (6 for 13 (.462) with 2 2B's. David Wright, who has 38 AB's vs Arroyo is batting .237 with 1 HR , 4 RBI's.

Arroyo (1-0) won his last time out (April 9th ) in San Francisco going 5 IP, 6 HIts, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K's.

The Mets will counter with Jenrry Mejia (1-0), who has never faced the D'Backs in his career.  He got a no decision last time out (April 10th) @ Atlanta when he went 5 IP, 6 Hits, 4 ER, 2 HR's, 4 BB's, 7 K's. The Mets won 6-4.  Only two players on the D'Backs roster have career 5 AB's vs Mejia. Martin Prado (4), Cody Ross (1).

Let's hope Mejia can contain the D'Backs and the Mets can put up some runs against Arroyo... LGM!

Pitching Probables - Zack Wheeler (0-2) 5.73 ERA vs  Josh Collmenter (0-0) 2.25 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 - 9:40 PM

Preview:


The New York Mets (5-7) will try and forget the dredging they got in Anaheim, as they were 14-2 losers. The Diamondbacks are trying to figure out how to win (4-11) and according to reports, has skipper Kirk Gibson on the hot seat. The D-Backs Rotation has been hit with injuries (Patrick Corbin) and Randall Delgado has not performed, so Josh Collmenter who spent much of his career in the bullpen will start for them. The Mets players on the team have seen him in relief have 43 AB's and have 16 hits (.372) off him. Ike Davis has a HR off Collmenter and David Wright has 2 HR's vs Collmenter in his career.

The Mets will counter will young Zack Wheeler. He has gotten beaten up a bit in his last two starts (5.73 ERA)...In Atlanta on April 9th,  he only got through 5 innings, giving up 8 hits, giving up 4 earned runs.. Wheeler (0-2) has pitched in Arizona going 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA. Six Players on the current D'Backs roster are hitting .312 combined with 1 HR vs Wheeler in their career. Aaron Hill hit the HR.

Wheeler has to improve to keep the D'Backs off the board and the Mets have to put up runs. Ike Davis looks like he might get the start.

Pitching Probables - RHP Bartolo Colon (1-1 - 2.01 ERA) vs LHP C.J. Wilson (1-1 - 4.61 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - 3:35PM

Preview:

The New York Mets look to take the rubber game of the 3 game set from the Angels and it would mark their third straight series win. The Mets also have not seen the .500 mark all season, same goes for the Angels.  The Mets will have to face LHP C.J. Wilson to accomplish that. Only five current Mets have faced him and they only are batting a career .139 off him. Curtis Granderson has 16 AB's vs Wilson and batting .188 vs him. The Mets will have to use Andrew Brown (prob DH) and Josh Satin (1B)  to counter the odds. Career against Wilson, Right hand hitters are batting .252 and lefties are batting .192 off him. Wilson won the last time out (9-1) vs the Astros on the April 7th, he went 8 innings, gave up 4 hits, and 7 K's . He threw 120 pitchers, 71 for strikes.

The Mets will send veteran RHP Bartolo Colon to the hill,  who seems to be a strike throwing machine these days.. His last game he won (4-0) and he threw 101 pitches, 70 for strikes. He also went 7 innings, gave up 6 hits, no runs, and K'd 5. In two starts, he has pitched 211 pitches and 145 of them were for strikes.  That's 69%... Colon knows the Angels far too well. In his career he is 12-6 with a 3.16 ERA vs the Angels. That is over 23 starts. This Group of Angels have had some success against Bartolo. The collectively bat .267 with 4 HR's and 17 RBIs. Mike Trout has two career HR's vs Colon.  Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez have one HR each off Colon in their careers.  Back to Trout, he owns Colon batting .500 (not a misprint) 7 for 14 off him.

It's going to interesting if Bartolo Colon can baffle the Angels or Blunder in Anaheim. Should be a high scoring affair, but maybe not?.... LGM!

The New York Mets (4-6) look to bounce back against the Anaheim Angels (5-5) Tonight. The Mets will be facing Jered Weaver who has been horrendous of late. Only 3 current Mets have faced him including Curtis Granderson, who is batting .370 (27 AB's) Off Weaver with 5 HR's.  Weaver has been proned to the long ball giving up 4 this season already.

The Mets will counter with Jon Niese, who has pitched well after having a disturbing spring training.  First time out, Hard luck loser Niese pitched 5.2 innings, giving up 6 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 walk, while striking out 4. Jon has faced the Angels before, he is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA vs Anaheim. The current team that has faced him are batting collectively .208 vs Niese with 2 HR's (Albert Pujols / Raul Ibanez). Niese also has struck out 11 of them as well.

Lets see if the Mets can hammer some long balls off Weaver and hopefully Niese can keep improving on what he has done already, LGM!

Pitching Probables - Dillon Gee (0-0) 4.50 ERA vs Tyler Skaggs (1-0) 0.00 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 - 10:05PM


Preview:

Tyler Skaggs is slated to take the mound and help the Angels avoid losing their first four home games for the second straight season Friday night against the New York Mets.

The Angels (4-5) re-acquired Skaggs from Arizona in a three-team, four-player trade in December, hoping he could add depth to a rotation that ranked 22nd in the majors with a 4.30 ERA.

The 22-year-old left-hander, a first-round draft pick by Los Angeles in 2009, looked capable of doing more than that Saturday. He dominated Houston, yielding an unearned run and four hits in eight innings of a 5-1 victory.

Skaggs has never faced the Mets in his career.

On the offensive side, Albert Pujols is 2 for 12 at home, but he hit safely in each game of the road trip, connecting for two-run homers in each of the last two contests.

The star first baseman is 8 for 18 (.444) with two homers, four RBIs and six runs over his last four meetings with the Mets, but those came in 2011 with St. Louis.

The Mets (4-5) will have Dillon Gee (0-0 4.50 ERA) on the Mound vs the Angels. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA on the road in interleague play.

Gee gave up two homers in Saturday's 6-3 win over Cincinnati. He surrendered the second a two-run shot before being pulled with one out in the eighth, but was off the hook for the loss after Ike Davis' walkoff grand slam.

Gee has held Albert Pujols hitless in three at-bats. He has only faced three batters on the Angels and they are batting .190 off him (4 for 21).

Eric Young Jr. was key to the success in the Atlanta series, going 5 for 12 (.417) with five stolen bases and as many runs. The left fielder was 2 for 19 with nine strikeouts over the first five games.

The Mets and Angels have split 12 all-time meetings, but New York has won four of six in Anaheim.

  1. Eric Young Jr. - LF
  2. Daniel Murphy - 2B

The Braves that have faced him are hitting .286 vs Mejia (4 for 14).  Dan Uggla has connected with a HR against Mejia.

The Mets will face Princeton Alum RHP David Hale. This will be the first time the Mets will face Hale. Hale went five innings in his first start (in Wash), giving up 5 hits, no earned runs, walked 2, while striking out 4.  He got a "No Decision".

Eric Young Jr. is 3 for 4 vs Santana. Santana has not pitched a game since March 25th in exhibition.

The Braves will look to even the series and will face young Zack Wheeler. Wheeler has had some success against Braves going 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA. He is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in Turner Field (Home Town). The Braves as a team are batting .196 vs Wheeler, but Freddie Freeman is batting .667 with a HR against him. Dan Uggla is batting .400 with a homer as well.

Preview:

The Brewers try to cap the season with a four-game sweep of the Mets on Sunday at Citi Field. The Mets will also celebrate Mike Piazza going into the Mets Hall of Fame.

Milwaukee (74-87) won Saturday 4-2 in 10 innings to pick up its 12th win in 17 games, a far departure from its 2-8 start to the season. Carlos Gomez snapped out of a 3-for-25 slump with four hits, including the go-ahead single.

The Mets (73-88) have lost three straight and will finish with a losing record for a fifth straight year, but Collins is close to an agreement to remain manager as the club attempts to build a winner.

Fielding an inexperienced lineup depleted by injuries and trades, Collins has kept the Mets competitive down the stretch without most of his top players.

One thing Collins has been unable to do is find a way to beat Milwaukee at Citi Field.

The Brewers have won 10 of 11 at the Mets' ballpark.

Preview:

The Brewers (73-87) hope to have Jean Segura in their lineup on Saturday against New York, while the Mets could be without David Wright again.

A win Saturday would clinch Milwaukee's fifth series victory in its last seven to end the year. The club has won nine of 13.

Segura has missed nine straight contests due to a strained right hamstring, but manager Ron Roenicke said he could start Saturday. He's hitting .296 in 145 games and his 44 stolen bases have him tied with New York's Eric Young for the NL lead.

Wright, who has played in five games since returning from his own strained right hamstring, missed Friday's contest due to a thumb injury. He cleared concussion tests after a changeup to the helmet forced him to leave Thursday's opener, but jammed his right thumb while hitting the dirt on the same play. The Mets (73-87) could use his bat after totaling 11 runs over their last five games.

Preview:

The Milwaukee Brewers (72-87) have won eight of nine visits to Flushing after taking the opener of this four-game set 4-2 on Thursday.

Carlos Gomez is scheduled to return from his suspension Friday night when the Brewers attempt to continue their success at Citi Field.

The center fielder is expected back in the lineup, and that should provide a lift. He leads Milwaukee with a career-high 23 homers and his 71 RBIs are a personal best.

That power and production has been on display over the past nine games. He's only 7 for 32 (.219) in that stretch, but has four homers, a double, triple and eight RBIs.

Milwaukee looks to win for the fifth time in six games overall as it sends Yovani Gallardo (11-10, 4.23 ERA) to the mound.

The right-hander has been impressive since returning from a strained left hamstring, going 3-1 with a 2.33 ERA in seven starts.

He had been 2-3 with a 7.22 ERA over his previous seven outings.

Preview:


The Mets open a three game set against the Milwaukee Brewers. This series will end the season for both teams. New York limited the playoff-bound Reds to four hits in a 1-0 victory Wednesday, lowering the team's ERA during a 9-4 stretch to 2.61.

The Mets, who have a 3.78 ERA this season, will start Dillon Gee (12-10, 3.54 ERA). The right-hander is 3-1 with a 2.88 ERA in his last five starts and is seeking to match his career high for victories, set in 2011.

Gee allowed four runs over six innings Saturday in Philadelphia but got enough support for a 5-4 win. He gave up three runs in his final frame amid a heavy downpour.

Gee is seven innings shy of reaching 200 for the first time, a remarkable feat for someone who entered this season after surgery to remove a blood clot in his right shoulder.

Gee dropped to 0-2 with a 7.15 ERA in two career starts against Milwaukee after permitting seven runs in 5 1-3 innings of an 8-0 loss May 15, 2012.
