After being pounded 9-3 on Tuesday night, the New York Mets are looking to bounce back with a win in the rubber game against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday afternoon.
Johan Santana was roughed up last night, only lasting 1 1/3 innings before being yanked. R.A. Dickey will try and right the ship against Jair Jurrjens.
Dickey has been great in his first two outings this year, both resulting in wins. In his first start Dickey beat the Braves at Citi Field, going six innings and allowing only two runs.
Jurrjens on the other hand has been beaten up. He's sporting a 7.71 ERA thanks in large part to his last appearance, when he gave up five runs in as many innings to Milwaukee in a no decision.
David Wright and Lucas Duda both hit homers off of Jurrgens in his first start against New York this year. He need not feel bad though, with Wright hitting a cool .500 on the year.
Dickey will be attempting to earn his first win ever at Turner Field when he takes the hill. With a victory, the Mets would secure their third series win in four tries on the young season.
Time: 12:10 p.m. ET
