The Braves are in my territory and will play the Mets in a big three game series. With a half game lead in the wildcard and a three game deficit in the East, the Braves need to win every game possible to keep their playoff hopes alive. I'll be at the game tonight, so hopefully I can bring the team some good luck.
Jacob Peterson of Talking Chop dissects the pitching matchups for the weekend:
If Lowe is able to continue to pitch as well as he has, the Braves could have the advantage in every pitching matchup. This is a huge serious despite the Mets not being in contention. Beating the weaker team, although they have been better than the Braves the past few weeks, is how you get your team into the playoffs.
