Preview: Braves at Mets Aug. 18, 2009

braves logoAtlanta Braves (62-56 Road: 30-29) at New York Mets (55-63 Home: 32-27) 7:10pm

Derek Lowe (12-7 4.08) vs. Oliver Perez (2-3 5.97)


What to watch: The Braves come to town hot, winning seven of their last nine games. Lowe has won his last five decisions and hasn’t lost a game since July 5. You already know about the Mets struggles but Perez has pitched well lately only allowing 2 earned runs over 11.2 innings in his last two starts. This will be Ryan Church‘s first game back at Citi Field since being traded to the Braves. I expect him to get a good welcome back from the crowd and everyone on the team, except for maybe Jerry Manuel.
