Atlanta hit 6 home runs in a 15-2 drubbing of the Mets on Friday night’s series opener at Citi Field. The braves jumped out to a 12-0 lead through four innings and never looked back as Max Fried picked up the win his return from the IR.
Atlanta’s offense has been red hot as they’ve scored a league leading 5.72 runs per game. They sit 3.5 games ahead of Miami in the National League East and look poised to make a World Series run. They look to keep their momentum going on Saturday night.
22-year-old phenom Ian Anderson takes the mound for Atlanta looking to add a win to his unblemished record. Anderson is 3-0 with a blistering 1.64 ERA in 4 starts.
New York Mets
New York will look to turn the page on Friday night’s nightmare and get back in the win column. The blowout was not indicative of the Mets offensive performance this year as they still lead the league in batting average (.280) and on base percentage (.355).
Although they don’t score runs as efficiently as Atlanta they are still 8th in runs per game (5.04)
David Peterson will take the mound for a struggling Mets pitching staff. He comes into this matchup with a 4.17 ERA and a record of 4-2.
Trying to slow down this Atlanta offense sill be a tough ask as he has given up seven runs in seven innings of work over his last two starts.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Atlanta should be able to get to Peterson early and likely force an early exit. The Braves offense is rolling and Peterson has only gone deeper than 4 innings in one of his last 4 starts.
This will give the Braves a crack at the Mets overly taxed bullpen. Both of these teams are top 10 in runs per game and bottom 15 in runs allowed per game.
Although Ian Anderson has been lights out his numbers come from a very small sample size. I don’t expect the Mets to put up a lot of runs on the righty but they should be able to push a few runs across.
That should be enough to push this one over the total.
