Preview: Braves at Mets Jun 4, 2011

Atlanta Braves (32-26) at New York Mets (26-31) 7:10pm

Jair Jurrjens (7-1 1.51) vs. Dillon Gee (5-0 3.83)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets need to win tonight and tomorrow to take this home series from the Braves. They’ll go for it behind Gee and the Mets have won all seven games he started this season. He’s been pitching really well, frequently getting to the sixth inning or beyond in his starts.

The Mets won’t have an easy time facing Jurrjens though. He’s been on fire since starting the season on the DL. The Braves are 7-2 in his nine starts this year. He hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in any start but his BAA is .271 on the road. So there’s hope that the Mets can get to him tonight.

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.
