Atlanta Braves (76-48) -New York Mets (57-66)
BEACHY:Beachy mixed in more sliders last Wednesday in his ongoing adjustment to pitching after Tommy John surgery and was limited to just six innings of a 6-3 win over the Phillies. The Braves have yet to lose a game he has started.WHEELER: Wheeler set a new personal best by striking out 12 Padres in six innings Thursday, throwing a career-high 115 pitches. He will face the Braves for a third time Tuesday, despite not seeing any other big league team even twice.
WOOD:Wood has been a different pitcher since struggling in the first two starts of his career, both losses against the Mets. Over his last four outings, he has posted a 1.78 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings pitched.__________________________________________________ __________________________NIESE:In two starts since returning from the disabled list, Niese is 2-0 with a 3.75 ERA, 14 strikeouts and two walks. He'll look to keep that going against a Braves team that has torched him for 10 runs in 7 1/3 innings this year.
