Atlanta resumes their series with New York on Wednesday night after struggling down the stretch in the season opener on Monday afternoon. The scoreless tie was broken in the seventh inning when the Mets when on a 6-run tear. First baseman Luca Duda did the most damage by bringing in three RBIs in the rally. Relief pitcher Hansel Robles picked up the victory. The Braves' starter, Julio Teheran, picked up a tough no decision, giving up just four hits and no runs. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 Eastern time and the game can be seen on MLB.tv, FSN South, and SNY.

Braves (0-1, 4th NL East)

Projected Starting Lineup:

  • 1: Ender Inciarte (L) - center fielder
  • 2: Dansby Swanson (R) - shortstop
  • 3: Freddie Freeman (L) - first baseman
  • 4: Matt Kemp (R) - left fielder
  • 5: Nick Markakis (L) - right fielder
  • 6: Brandon Phillips (R) - second baseman
  • 7: Adonis Garcia (R) - third baseman
  • 8: Kurt Suzuki (R) - catcher
  • 9: Bartolo Colon (R) - pitcher

Right-hander Colon will get the nod for the Braves in a unique situation.

He'll be playing against his old team immediately out of the gate. In 2016, he racked up a 15-8 record with a 3.43 ERA with the Mets. He finished the season with a 5-1 record in his last nine starts.

Mets (1-0, 1st NL East)

Projected starting lineup:

  • 1: Jose Reyes (S) - third baseman
  • 2: Asdrubal Cabrera (S) - shortstop
  • 3: Yoenis Cespedes (R) - left fielder
  • 4: Curtis Granderson (L) - center fielder
  • 5: Neil Walker (S) - second baseman
  • 6: Jay Bruce (L) - right fielder
  • 7: Lucas Duda (L) - first baseman
  • 8: Travis d'Arnaud (R) - catcher
  • 9: Jacob deGrom (L) - pitcher

deGrom had a more human season in 2016 with a 7-8 record and a 3.04 ERA. He's the Mets' second choice and is looking to get back to his 2015 ways when the team made the World Series.

Late in 2016, the right-hander lost his last three starts and gave up 16 runs and a whopping 31 hits combined.

New York is a large favorite at home with the moneyline at -225 and Atlanta sits at +175; the run total sits at 7. The Braves are 12-3 in their last 15 games overall while the Mets are just 3-9 in their last 12 games.
