Preview: Mets at Braves April 15, 2011

New York Mets (4-9)  at Atlanta Braves (5-8) 7:30pm

D.J. Carrasco (0-0 4.05) vs. Derek Lowe (1-2 1.45)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets, losers of five straight games, limp into Atlanta for a three game series starting tonight. Chris Young couldn’t make the start because of bicep tendinitis so Carrasco gets a spot start.

The Braves haven’t been playing great baseball either so maybe this is what the Mets need to get right. The Braves have lost series’ to the Brewers, Phillies, and Marlins already. But Lowe has pitched really well in his two starts, both losses. He’s allowed only 3 runs in 13 innings and his WHIP is a paltry 1.07. It’s been tough to get on base against him so far this season.
