After a 2-4 homestand the Mets take to the road to play the Atlanta Braves, Anaheim Angels and the Arizona Diamondbacks. This will be no easy task and they better bring their bats especially in Atlanta as their pitching staff has compiled a 1.56 era, winning 4 of their first six games.
The Mets begin the Atlanta series tomorrow night after today’s off day with Bartolo Colon facing Aaron Harang. Wednesday will be Ervin Santana’s debut as a Brave versus Zach Wheeler. The series finale puts the Mets electric Jenrry Mejia up against rookie, David Hale who has given up 1 earned run in 16 career major league innings. The Braves are trying to repeat as NL east division champs and although they have lost 2/5 of their rotation to injuries, they make no excuse and appear determined to do whatever it takes to win. The Mets will have to be at their best in all aspects to compete. The goal will be to strike early, so they won’t have the even more challenging task of putting runs up against the Braves’ bullpen.>
