The Atlanta Braves are hosting the New York Mets; having just finished a five-game set a week ago, these two teams are playing another four games.

The Braves enter play with a six-game winning streak. After losing four out of five against New York, Atlanta swept the Boston Red Sox and Miami Marlins. Hopefully, they can continue this hot streak and gain some ground in the National League East.

Exiting that five-game set, the Metropolitans had a 6.5 game lead; having won five of their last six in the past week, they are still 5.5 games ahead of Atlanta. They'll do their best to maintain that lead.
