The New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves will face off in game 2 of their 4 game series in Atlanta. The Braves and Mets have already faced each other in 3 series this year, this being the 4th, with the Atlanta Braves holding a 4-4 edge in the 2017 season. In those 8 games between the Braves and the Mets, the score has went over the posted total in 6 out of 8 games.

Mets Gsellman Familiar With Braves

The New York Mets are 25-33 on the year and are 12 games back in 4th place in the National League East Division. The Mets have gone 4-6 in their last 10 games and are 14-16 against teams from within their division.

The Mets will give right hander Robert Gsellman the start on Saturday. Gsellman is 4-3 this year in 10 games started. He currently has a 5.53 ERA in 57 innings pitched. Gsellman has allowed 69 hits, 35 earned runs and has been tagged fro 7 home runs. He has struck out 44 batters and walked 19.

Gsellman has faced the Braves 3 times already this year. He faced them in relief back on April 3 and pitched 1 inning, allowing 2 hits and no runs in a 6-0 NYM win. The then faced them on April 26 and was tagged for 10 hits, 6 runs and 3 walks over 4 innings in a 8-2 Braves win. He then turned around and faced them just a few days later on May 1 and went 5 innings, giving up 6 hits and 5 earned runs in a 7-5 Braves win. That was his first win of the year.

Braves Send Rookie To The Mound For MLB Debut

The Atlanta Braves are 27-32 and are 10.5 games back in 2nd place in the National League East Division. The Braves have gone 5-5 in their last 10 games and are 11-15 against teams from the National League East Division.

The Braves will send Sean Newcomb to the mound on Saturday to make his Major Leagues Debut! Newcomb comes to the Braves from Triple-A Gwinnett, where he was averaging 11.5K’s per 9 innings.

A Rookie and Gsellman Equals High Scoring

The Braves are putting a rookie on the mound to make his debut and all though he has a decent amount of strikeouts, his walk ratio is also high! He has struggled with control this year and will be welcomed by a Mets team that has hit the 4th most home runs and has scored the 7th most runs in the National League. The Braves have already proven that they can hit Gsellman so this should come as no surprise that I expect this game to be close throughout with both teams scoring a minimum of 5 runs each.

The last 23 road games that the New York Mets have played in, they have played over the posted total 16 times. Overall, the last 35 out of 55 games that the Mets played have all gone over the posted total. Pick: Mets vs. Braves Over for 4 Units
