The Atlanta Braves will try to snap a seven-game losing streak dating back to last season on Sunday when they close out their opening series with the New York Mets. Atlanta dropped the series opener 1-0 on Thursday and the second game 4-2 on Saturday. Now they will turn to Mike Minor as they try to salvage one game on Sunday.
It might not matter how good Minor is if Atlanta can't get its offense jump started. The Braves are a combined 0-10 with runners in scoring position this season and have been unable to string together any key hits. They will face another challenge on Sunday in the form of New York Mets lefty Jonathon Niese.
The first pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET and you can catch all of the action on SportSouth.
