After being swept by the New York Mets in their opening series, the Atlanta Braves will get another crack at them on Monday. The Braves enter the series as one of the hottest teams in baseball, having won five straight games.
Tommy Hanson will take the hill again against the Mets after facing them in the season opener. On that day he gave up just one run over five innings but took the loss after the lone run of the game scored on a David Wright RBI single in the sixth inning.
The player to watch in the lineup is Jason Heyward, who is heating up for the Braves and is 4-for-10 with a home run in his career off Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee.
