The Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets will conclude a mini two game divisional series Wednesday afternoon from SunTrust Park. The Mets will give the call to 29-year old right-hander Jacob deGrom, and the Braves will respond with 20-year old right-hander Michael Soroka. The Braves lead the season-series 7-3.

DeGrom Receives No Run Support in First Loss of Season

Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the 14th time of the season, aiming for his first win since May 18th. DeGrom was sharp once again in his previous performance, allowing three runs (two earned) in eight innings against the Yankees, however he was charged with the loss. The 6-foot-4 right-hander continues to stifle opponents, however he is receiving very little run support. He enters this one with a tremendous 1.57 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP accompanied with a 4-1 record in 80.1 innings logged on the year. He has limited the Braves to only one run in 18 innings this season, and owns a 5-3 record with a remarkable 1.84 ERA in 14 career starts against the divisional foes. Nick Markakis is 9 for 30 with three RBI’s against deGrom, while Freddie Freeman is 10 for 35 with two homers, and Ozzie Albies is 1 for 10.

Brandon Nimmo has enjoyed success against the Braves pitching this season, driving in five runs to go with a .480 on base percentage in 18 at bats. The 25-year old center fielder is currently hitting .271 with eight home runs and 15 RBI’s on the season. Nimmo has recorded eight RBI’s in his last 12 games. Yoenis Cespedes remains out of the Mets lineup. The struggling Mets offense ranks down at 27th in the Majors with 3.82 runs per game. The New York pitching staff is carrying a 4.03 team ERA, placing them 16th in the Major Leagues.

Soroka Seeks Another Win Against Mets

Michael Soroka has been activated from the DL for his fourth start of the season, seeking his second win. Soroka last pitched for the Braves back on May 12th and he was roughed up, serving up five runs (one earned) on eight hits in 4.2 innings against Miami, resulting in a no-decision in a 10-5 Braves’ win. The rookie right-hander battled the Mets in his Major League debut and he was outstanding, allowing only one run in six innings in a 3-2 Atlanta victory. He has allowed 10 runs (six earned) in 14.2 innings pitched on the season.

Nick Markakis is having a solid season against the Mets pitching staff this season, going 15 for 41 with one home run and 10 RBI’s. The 34-year old right fielder is having a remarkable season, sporting a stellar .327 average with eight home runs and 43 RBI’s. Markakis has driven in five runs in his last seven games. The Braves rank fifth in the Majors with an average of 4.95 runs per game. The Atlanta pitching staff features a 3.68 team ERA, placing them 10th in the Major Leagues.

Trends:

The New York Mets are:

  • 21-10 in their last 31 games in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Braves are:

  • No Key Trends

I am taking the Mets in this matchup. Jacob deGrom continues to shine, allowing only a combined five runs over his last nine starts, and he has shut down the Braves throughout his career, posting a dazzling 1.84 ERA in 14 starts. Furthermore, Soroka is an inexperienced rookie, and he has surrendered 21 hits and 10 runs in his 14.2 innings pitched on the season, so I expect the Mets to have a strong night at the plate.

Pick: New York Mets

Jacob deGrom has silenced the Braves’ bats this season, and Michael Soroka shut down the Mets earlier this season. DeGrom has held the Braves to only one run in 18 innings this season, and he features a 1.57 ERA on the road this season, plus the under is 8-2 in his last ten starts against the Braves. Soroka limited the Mets to one run in six innings earlier this season, and the under is 5-0 in the Braves last five home games.

Pick: Under
