The Braves run up against an even 13-13 road record and have lost 10 of their last 14 road games, but swept two straight three-game series on a six-game homestand
The Mets are slumping severely. They've scored three or fewer runs in 12 of their last 16 games. Ike Davis has been one of their biggest problems while in a 1-for-38 mess.
The Mets continue an eight-game homestand that has already seen them suffer a three-game sweep from the Cincinnati Reds. They have lost six in a row.
The Braves and Mets split two games of a rain-shortened series at Turner Field earlier this month, though Atlanta has taken 13 of their last 16 games from the Mets.
