Preview: Braves at Mets April 24, 2010

Atlanta Braves (8-8) at New York Mets (8-9)  1:10 pm

Jair Jurrjens (0-1 6.06) vs. Jon Niese (0-1 4.32)

TV: WPIX   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Niese’s last start against the Cubs was a good one, going 5.2 IP and giving up no earned runs in a no-decision. Jurrjens went 8 IP in his last start against Colorado giving up 3 earned runs in a no-decision. The Mets’ lineup looked pretty good with Jose Reyes hitting third in the order, so I’m sure we’ll see more of that this weekend.

On Deck: May 21-Mets vs. Braves

New York Mets (22-21) at Atlanta Braves (24-21)  7:10pm

Mike Pelfrey (2-4) vs. Jair Jurrjens (4-3)

TV: SNY         Radio: WFAN

What to watch: After getting swept in a double header yesterday the Mets need to cut their losses in this Atlanta series by winning both tonight and tomorrow. The pressure is on Mike Pelfrey to pitch as well as he did in his last start (a loss) when he was fantastic. Willie Randolph is becoming a real distraction for this team. He’s finally starting to realize that he won’t be scrutinized so closely when the Mets win. Go figure! Willie is always the last to figure these things out.
