    New York Mets (2-4) @ Atlanta Braves (4-2) 4/8-4/10




    @





    New York Mets @ Atlanta Braves





    Tuesday, 4/8 7:10 PM

    Bartolo Colon, RHP (0-1, 4.50 ERA/6.10 FIP/3.63 xFIP)vs Aaron Harang, RHP (1-0, 0.00 ERA/2.65 FIP/4.32 xFIP)



    Though Colon technically threw a quality start in his Mets debut, it was not enough to avoid his first loss. He has only faced the Braves three times in his career, but is 3-0 with a 1.57 ERA in those games and 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA at Turner Field.


    Harang gets the start in Atlanta's home opener just two weeks after being released by the Indians. The veteran hurler provided a welcome surprise when he limited Milwaukee to two hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings on Wednesday.

    Wednesday, 4/9 7:10 PM

    Zack Wheeler, RHP (0-1, 4.50 ERA/4.27 FIP/3.55 xFIP)vs Ervin Santana, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA/0.00 FIP/0.00 xFIP)



    Wheeler struck out six batters in the first three innings of his season debut against the Nationals on Thursday, but could not scratch out a victory. Next up are Wheeler's hometown Braves in Atlanta, where he made his big league debut last June.


    Santana will be making this season debut exactly one month after the Braves first contacted him with the hope the veteran right-hander would replenish their depleted starting rotation. He has a 3.82 ERA in 31 career starts against NL teams.

    Thursday, 4/10 7:10 PM

    Jenrry Mejia, RHP (1-0, 1.50 ERA/2.93 FIP/3.35 xFIP)vs David Hale, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA/2.70 FIP/3.44 xFIP)



    Mejia's debut was hardly efficient, with eight strikeouts and five walks leading to 101 pitches in six innings. But the Reds only scored once off Mejia, who vindicated the Mets' decision to carry him over Daisuke Matsuzaka on the Opening Day roster.


    Hale once again displayed an effective sinker in his season debut, as he tossed five scoreless innings against the Nationals. The suburban Atlanta native has allowed one earned run through his first three career starts.

    We are facing two hard throwing pitchers in the last two games, need to take game 1, this is the key for this series.

    On paper we should own these fools...but that ain't how it goes.

    Offense has to step up..get the feeling the rotation is going to regress a little bit.

    Last year these Mets were quite the pain in our ***** too..lets start off our homestand off right.

    Have to protect your house. Hopefully getting back home will get some of these guys going. Freeman can only do so much on his own, he's going to need some help.

    Tough matchups with Wheeler and Mejia. Take 2 of 3 and I'll be happy.

    Nice to see Gattis going the other way, Colon is throwing 88-92 MPH in the middle, he has very good control so being more agressive could be a good strategy tonight.

    Has Heyward always had a closed stance? I don't remember him having one in the past.

    Wow, Colon is just firing fastball after fastball in there and we aren't hitting any of them. A couple of hits and no real threat yet. He has thrown maybe 4 off speed pitches through 4 innings and we looked like we are getting fooled at the plate. Hopefully we turn it around or it will be another low scoring game for our offense.

    A good note, Harang has looked pretty good except for the BB's.
