This NL matchup includes a team at the top of the division and a team at the bottom.
The New York Mets currently stand 5 games behind the Nationals right now.
The Atlanta Braves could be eliminated from the playoffs soon, currently 21.5 games back.
The Atlanta Braves lineup has been all but consistent this season; they can’t even get an everyday lineup anymore. They are led in hitting by Freddie Freeman.
Freeman is hitting .257 on the year with 11 home runs but only 22 RBIs. Nick Markakis has been the Braves most deadly this season.
He is hitting .247 with 16 doubles and 34 runs batted in. Mallex Smith is hitting .247 while he has legged out 4 triples and knocked in 20 runs this season.
The Braves lineup will have their hands full this series vs the Mets rotation.
The Braves have John Gant on the mound on Friday where he is making his 2nd start of the season.
Gant has been working out of the bullpen so far this season, where he is currently 0-1 on the year with a 5.63 E.R.A and 19 strikeouts on the year.
He was last in action in a loss against the Chicago Cubs. He worked in 4.1 innings where he gave up 2 earned runs on 4 hits. Gant walked 4 batters and struck out 5.
He looks to continue the pitching he had in Chicago.
New York Mets
The New York Mets lineup has been banged up for most of this year and they are led by their stud Yoenis Cespedes. Cespedes is hitting .286 on the year with 16 dingers and 40 runs batted in, all of these stats lead the Mets.
Neil Walker was a big pickup for the Mets this offseason; he is hitting .271 on the year with 13 home runs and 25 RBIs. Curtis Granderson has been doing well at the leadoff position.
While he’s only hitting .223, he has 26 extra base hits and has knocked in 20 runs this season.
Matt Harvey takes the mound Friday, and he does not look like the typical Matt Harvey. Harvey currently stands at 4-8 with a 4.66 E.R.A and 61 strikeouts.
Harvey last got a no decision in his start in Milwaukee.
He pitched in 6 innings where he only gave up 1 earned run on 2 hits. Harvey struck out 8 while only walking 2.
Harvey looks to feed off of that quality start against the weak Braves lineup.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
It’s going to be hard to think the Braves are going to be predicted to win a ball game for the rest of this season. I’m taking the Mets here in the clear cut favorite in this one.
I think that Harvey will be a lot of trouble for this Braves lineup who has not been good this season.
