Suntrust Park Braves Baseball

Colon Faces Former Team

The New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves will meet on Wednesday at SunTrust Park in Atlanta. The new stadium for the Braves is turning out to be a homerun hitters paradise.

The Mets will give the ball to starter Jacob deGrom in this one. Righthander deGrom is 1-1 this season with a 2.84 ERA.

DeGrom has recorded double-figure strikeouts in each of his past three starts — the first Mets pitcher to do that since David Cone in 1992.

It is the second time that deGrom is matched with Colon this season, and both got the better of opposing hitters on April 5 at Citi Field in New York. DeGrom allowed two hits over six scoreless innings.  Colon’s only mistake was a homer by Jay Bruce in the fifth inning. H onlye gave up one other hit in his six innings.

Bartolo Colon starts for the Braves. Righthanded Colon is 1-2 with a 5.59 ERA so far this season. Colon (1-2) allowed 21 hits and 10 runs in his past two starts. A loss at Philadelphia and a no-decision at Milwaukee.

Oddsmakers opened the Mets as -110-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total opened at 8. The Mets are now -135-moneyline favorites and the total is up to 8.5.
