Game Preview: Mets at Braves [Game 88] July 16, 2009

braves logoNew York Mets (42-45 Road: 17-25)  at Atlanta Braves (43-45 Home: 21-21) 7:10 pm

Oliver Perez (2-2 8.78) vs. Derek Lowe (8-7 4.39)


What to watch: The Braves come out of the All-Star break after going 4-3 in their last two series’ against the Cubs and Rockies. Lowe hasn’t been pitching that well, going 1-4 in his last five decisions. Perez had a decent comeback game from “injury” against the Dodgers pitching 5 innings and giving up 2 runs. Perez is 6-4 with a 3.46 ERA in 14 career starts against Atlanta. It’ll be interesting to see how Jeff Francoeur and Ryan Church perform against their former teams in this series. I have the feeling that both will want to put on a show.
