Mets Vs. Braves Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Mets face the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon in what will be the final game for future hall-of-famer Chipper Jones in Queens. The Braves are trying to extend Jones' career into the playoffs, as they currently lead the National League Wild Card race.

The Mets will send Chris Young to the mound to try and play spoiler. Young is 4-7 with a 4.48 ERA in 16 starts this season. He went five innings, giving up just one run, in his last outing against Miami. Young faced Atlanta on July 13, giving up five runs in three innings while taking the loss.

Tommy Hanson gets the call for the Braves. The right-hander is 12-8 with a 4.40 ERA on the year. He racked up a high pitch count in just 5.2 innings during his last start against Colorado. In that appearance, he gave up two runs while striking out eight. Hanson struggled against the Mets on July 14, allowing six runs in just 5.1 innings pitched.

The Mets are all but out of the playoff race at this point, as they are nine games out of the final Wild Card spot.

Game Time/TV Schedule: 1:10 p.m ET on SNY.

Braves 11, Mets 3: New York Gets Blitzed By Atlanta

The Atlanta Braves throttled the New York Mets once again, beating the less-than-Amazins' 11-3 on Saturday afternoon at Citi Field.

New York watched Jeremy Hefner have one of his worst outings this year, giving up five runs in just 2.2 innings pitched on eight hits and a pair of free passes. Hefner couldn't get anything going after the first, allowing a run in the second and four in the third.

On the other side, Kris Medlen continued his sterling campaign with another win. Medlen is now 8-1 on the season after throwing six solid innings while surrendering only two runs.

Offensively, Lucas Duda and David Wright each had two hits apiece. Duda had an RBI single in the fourth, scoring Wright before smoking an RBI double to right in the eighth, bringing in Wright once more.

The Braves pounded out 17 hits as a team, including two home runs by Brian McCann and Eric Hinske.

On Sunday, the Mets will attempt to salvage a game against Atlanta with Chris Young on the mound.

Mets Vs. Braves Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

Chipper Jones will play in his penultimate game in Queens on Saturday, as the New York Mets play host to the Atlanta Braves at 4:05 p.m. ET.

The Mets are hosting the Braves for the final time in 2012 this weekend, and Saturday's game is the middle game of a three-game set between the two rivals. The trip is Jones' final trip to Queens, as the first-ballot Hall of Famer is retiring after the 2012 season.

Jeremy Hefner gets the start for the Mets. The start will be Hefner's 10th start of the year, and 22nd appearance. To date, Hefner has a 4.52 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and has struck out 47 batters against just 12 walks in 75 and 2/3 innings of work on the season.

New York's offense, meanwhile, has the tough task of solving Kris Medlen. Medlen comes into the game with a 7-1 record and microscopic 1.56 ERA and .96 WHIP. In his last 10 appearances, Medlen has surrendered just three runs total, dating back to July 21, and has given up no runs in his last four starts, upping his consecutive scoreless inning streak to 36 and 1/3.

First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET. Televised coverage can be found on FOX.

Braves 3, Mets 0: New York Shut Out By Atlanta At Home

The New York Mets got off to a slow start in their series at home against the Atlanta Braves, dropping the first game, 3-0.

Braves starter Paul Maholm was one of six pitchers to limit the Mets to only five hits on the night. Maholm gave up all five hits but picked up his 12th win of the season as he went 5 1/3 innings striking out six batters along the way. Closer Craig Kimbrel came on in the ninth to earn his 35th save of the year. The Braves' Dan Uggla and Jason Heyward chipped in offensively with solo home runs.

The Mets' Jonathan Niese had a fine start, going six innings and giving up only one run. But he picked up his ninth loss due to a lack of run support and is now 10-9 on the season.

Another down spot for the Mets was the loss of center fielder Andres Torres. He left the game in the top of the second inning with a knee bruise and his status for the rest of the series isn't yet known.
