Atlanta Braves Will Try to Get a Win When Meet New York Mets from Citi Field, Queens, New York - Major League Baseball (MLB) Match Preview and Prediction Game on Monday, July 26, 2021.
Preview

The Atlanta Braves have alternated wins and losses since the All-Star break, but have found themselves further behind the New York Mets, who have also been mediocre since returning to action 10 days ago.

The Braves will look to make up some ground over the Mets on Monday afternoon, when rivals from across the division open a five-game series with a double scheduled at Citi Field.

Left-hander Kyle Muller (1-3, 3.20 ERA) and right-hander Bryse Wilson (2-3, 5.34 ERA) should start, in that order, for the Braves. Right-hander Marcus Stroman (7-8, 2.59 ERA) is expected to start Game 1 for the Mets, who haven't announced a starter for the last shot.

The Braves lost their chance to win a four-game streak against host Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday afternoon when they were eliminated in the ninth inning of a 2-1 loss. The Mets earned a second straight series win on Sunday when a Jeff McNeil double hit beat the tie by two and capped a four-run sixth inning that saw New York beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-4.

The Braves, who have not won a game in a row since a three-game streak from July 7-10, fell to third with Sunday's loss, five games behind the Mets. Atlanta, whose longest winning streak this season is a pair of four-game streaks, has been no less than three games behind New York on two consecutive days in a six-day stretch from May 22-28.

Consistency also eluded the Mets long before the All-Star break. New York, which is 5-4 with two straight winning streaks and one straight losing streak in the second half, has not had a three straight win streak since a trio of wins over the 14-16 Chicago Cubs. of June.

But with a consistent lead at the top of the NL East (the Mets have been in first place every day since May 8, have led no less than two games since May 26 and enter four games against the Phillies on Monday), New York is openly thinking about a playoff race in October.

Muller suffered the loss last Wednesday when he allowed a run in four innings when the Braves lost 3-2 to the San Diego Padres in Game 1 of a doubles program. Wilson, who will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, last pitched in the majors on June 20, when he suffered a loss after allowing five runs in four innings in Atlanta's 9-1 loss to the Cardinals. of San Luis.

Stroman had one of the best starts of his career last Wednesday, when he took the win with eight innings in the Mets' 7-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
