New York Mets (46-42) At Atlanta Braves (48-39) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

After back-to-back days of bad pitching performances leading to losses, the New York Mets are hoping Sunday their ace Johan Santana can right all the pitching wrongs when he faces the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field (1:35 p.m. ET on SNY).

The Mets (46-42), losers of four straight and five of their last six, dropped the first two games of the three-games set thanks to a bad start from starting pitcher Chris Young, who lasted just three innings on Friday, and a blown save from newly appointed closer Bobby Parnell on Saturday.

Santana (6-5, 3.24 ERA) will try and help out his team by rebounding for a poor performance in his last start, which featured him allowing seven runs against the Chicago Cubs. Meanwhile, the Braves (48-39) will start former Milwaukee Brewers ace Ben Sheets.

Sheets will be making his first start since July 19, 2010, when he played for the Oakland A's. Since then, Sheets has been recovering from Tommy John surgery.
