After being shut down for nine innings on Saturday night by Dillion Gee, the Braves' offense is sputtering once again against R.A. Dickey. The club is currently trailing the Mets 4-0 after three innings.
Tim Hudson got the start for the Braves and is struggling to keep his sinker down in the strike zone. He's been hit well by the Mets and they've capitalized with runners in scoring position. Carlos Beltran got the Mets on the board with an RBI-double in the first inning and Angel Pagan drove him in with a deep sacrifice fly to center field. New York added onto their 2-0 lead with an RBI-single courtesy of Justin Turner and then a wild pitch from Tim Hudson brought in Jose Reyes from third.
The Braves have just one hit in three innings and that was a bloop single by Freddie Freeman. Through three innings, R.A. Dickey has thrown 38 pitches. In contrast, Tim Hudson has thrown 51.
Atlanta will need to mount a comeback if they hope to avoid a series loss to the fourth place Mets.
