The Atlanta Braves are looking for their third straight series win when they host a business man's special Wednesday afternoon against the New York Mets. Atlanta will send Jair Jurrjens to the mound and he will be opposed by New York's R.A. Dickey.
Jurrjens is off to a slow start but was encouraged in his last start by his increase in velocity. He wasn't particularly effective against the Milwaukee Brewers allowing five runs in five innings but hasn't experienced any problems with the knee injury that hampered him throughout the second half of last season. As Jurrjens knee injury flared up, his velocity dropped and therefore so did his effectiveness.
