New York aims to win its series against Atlanta Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

The New York Mets look to win their weekend series against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon at 1:35 p.m. ET at Turner Field. Atlanta, which has clinched a playoff spot, won last night, 2-0, on a solid outing from Mike Minor (11-10, 4.12 ERA), who pitched 6⅓ scoreless innings, giving up just three hits and striking out four.

The Mets were unable to produce anything offensively, whereas the Braves scored a run each in the bottom of the first and fifth innings. Chris Young (4-9, 4.15 ERA) earned the loss for New York.

Kris Medlen (9-1, 1.64 ERA) will get the start for Atlanta tonight, who will have his club on the cusp of breaking a MLB record this afternoon. The Braves have won the last 22 games started by Melden, tying the current record. Medlen will face New York righty Jenrry Mejia (1-1, 4.91 ERA), who earned his first big-league victory this past Monday after five innings of shutout ball against Pittsburgh.

The game will be televised on WPIX in New York and on FSS in Atlanta.
