The New York Mets face off against the Atlanta Braves for a three game set, possibly Chipper Jones' final series in front of his home fans at Turner Field and his last against the Mets.

The New York Mets will continue to play out the string of the 2012 season by facing a team that's already sealed up a postseason bid as they head to face the Atlanta Braves.

The drama is out of this series for the most part, as both teams know the fate of their regular season and the Braves will be concerned with resting their players and setting up their rotation for a pivotal one-game Wild Card playoff. The storyline probably centers around Chipper Jones: the retiree said goodbye to New York earlier this year, but now he'll have the final opportunity of his career to play the Met-killer. Friday night is "Chipper Jones Tribute Night" at Turner Field, and this could be his last series at home in Atlanta should the team fail to win its playoff game against an undetermined opponent.

Jonathon Niese has gone at least six innings and given up no more than three runs in his last seven starts, but he's only 4-3 in that stretch as the team has often failed to put up runs behind him. He'll face Tim Hudson, who pitched 7.1 innings without allowing an earned run his last time on the mound.
