Preview: Mets at Braves April 16, 2011

New York Mets (4-9)  at Atlanta Braves (5-8) 4:10pm

D.J. Carrasco (0-0 4.05) vs. Derek Lowe (1-2 1.45)

Mike Pelfrey (0-1 10.80) vs. Jair Jurrjens (0-0 NA)

TV: Fox, SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets, losers of five straight games, limp into Atlanta for a three game series starting with a rain-delayed doubleheader today. Chris Young couldn’t make the start because of bicep tendinitis so Carrasco gets a spot start. Expect to see the bullpen working early and often in this game.

Pelfrey goes in the second game and the Mets have lost all three games that he started this year. Jurrjens hasn’t made a start this season after straining his oblique during a spring training game on March 24.
