Preview: Mets at Braves June 14, 2011

New York Mets (32-34) at Atlanta Braves (38-29) 7:10pm

Jon Niese (5-5 3.51) vs. Jair Jurrjens (8-2 1.82)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Braves have won six of seven games since losing the series against the Mets at Cit Field a week and a half ago. In that series Jurrjens got knocked around a bit by the Mets and took a loss. He gave up 3 earned runs in 6.1 innings. Since then, he won a game against the Marlins.

Niese has been awesome in his last five starts. In that span he’s given up 5 runs over 33.2 innings (1.36 ERA). His curve ball has been working lately but his control has been inconsistent. He walked 4 batters in two of those five starts.
