Preview: Braves at Mets June 5, 2011

Atlanta Braves (32-27) at New York Mets (27-31) 8:05pm

Tim Hudson (4-4 3.75) vs. R.A. Dickey (2-6 4.39)

TV: ESPN              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets and Braves play the rubber game of the series on national TV tonight. Hudson has pitched pretty well this season but the Braves are 5-6 in games he started. In his last start in Atlanta he went 6 innings against the Padres and allowed only 1 earned run.

The Mets are 3-8 in Dickey’s starts this season. He pitched through a tough foot injury in his last start against the Pirates and went 7.2 innings allowing 3 runs. He took the loss but got no run support. He’s proving how tough he is pitching through this injury.

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.
