Game Preview: Mets at Braves [Game 88] July 16, 2009

braves logoNew York Mets (42-45 Road: 17-25)  at Atlanta Braves (43-45 Home: 21-21) 7:10 pm

Oliver Perez (2-2 8.78) vs. Derek Lowe (8-7 4.39)


What to watch: The Braves come out of the All-Star break after going 4-3 in their last two series’ against the Cubs and Rockies. Lowe hasn’t been pitching that well, going 1-4 in his last five decisions. Perez had a decent comeback game from “injury” against the Dodgers pitching 5 innings and giving up 2 runs. Perez is 6-4 with a 3.46 ERA in 14 career starts against Atlanta. It’ll be interesting to see how Jeff Francoeur and Ryan Church perform against their former teams in this series. I have the feeling that both will want to put on a show.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
