New York Mets
The New York Mets lineup has been up and down for most of the season, and they are led by Yoenis Cespedes for a second year in a row. Yo is hitting .284 on the year with 18 dingers and 44 runs batted in, all of which lead this team.
Asdrubal Cabrera is hitting a .265 average with 14 doubles but only 22 RBIs. Neil Walker has been a big pickup for the Mets this season; he is hitting .261 on the year with 14 home runs and 28 RBIs.
Matt Harvey takes the mound on Thursday and he has been struggling. Harvey is currently 4-9 on the year with a 4.76 E.R.A and 66 strikeouts.
He lost his last start against the Braves last week. He pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 4 earned runs on 7 hits.
Harvey struck out 5 batters and walked two against the Braves. He looks to bounce back and get some revenge Thursday.
The Atlanta Braves lineup has not been good from top to bottom this whole season. They are led by Freddie Freeman on the year.
Freeman is hitting .276 on the year with 12 home runs and 26 runs batted in. Nick Markakis is hitting .243 with 17 doubles and a team leading 39 RBIs.
Jeff Francoeur is hitting .270 this season with 11 extra base hits and only 18 RBIs. This Braves lineup looks to knock Harvey around again for a second straight appearance.
The Atlanta Braves have Matt Wisler on the mound Thursday. Wisler is currently 3-7 on the year with a 4.23 E.R.A and 60 strikeouts.
Wisler was last in action in a win against the Cincinnati Reds where he pitched in 6.2 innings giving up 2 earned runs on 8 hits; Wisler walked 2 batters and struck out 5.
He looks to continue this success against the divisional foe.

Free New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Braves sweeping the Mets in the last series is an absolute shock to all it seems like. Don’t expect it to happen again.
Although I do see Harvey to struggle again on Thursday, this Mets lineup will be able to do enough at the plate in order to get the victory in Atlanta and end the slump against the Braves.
