Preview: Mets at Braves June 14, 2011

New York Mets (32-34) at Atlanta Braves (38-29) 7:10pm

Jon Niese (5-5 3.51) vs. Jair Jurrjens (8-2 1.82)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Braves have won six of seven games since losing the series against the Mets at Cit Field a week and a half ago. In that series Jurrjens got knocked around a bit by the Mets and took a loss. He gave up 3 earned runs in 6.1 innings. Since then, he won a game against the Marlins.

Niese has been awesome in his last five starts. In that span he’s given up 5 runs over 33.2 innings (1.36 ERA). His curve ball has been working lately but his control has been inconsistent. He walked 4 batters in two of those five starts.

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.
