The Braves won't have quite the same firepower on the mound as they had in Philadelphia as Aaron Harang, Ervin Santana, and David Hale will each make a start. The weather is predicted to be fine all weekend so there should be no risk of rain delays.
In facing the Mets not too long ago they should be facing more-or-less the same group. The Mets are 8-7 with a 0 run differential so they have played exactly like a league average team thus far. They are fresh off of a sweep of the lowly Arizona Diamondbacks but that was on the road and for whatever reason over the past number of years the Mets have played much better away from Citi Field.
Here are the probable starters:
Friday April 18, 7:10pm ET
Aaron Harang (ATL) 3 starts, 2-1, 0.96 ERA, 8.20 K/9, 2.89 BB/9
Jon Niese (NYM) 2 starts, 0-1, 3.46 ERA, 6.23 K/9, 1.38 BB/9
Saturday April 19, 7:10pm ET
Ervin Santana (ATL): 2 starts, 1-0, 0.64 ERA, 10.93 K/9, 1.29 BB/9
Bartolo Colon (NYM): 3 starts, 1-2, 6.00 ERA, 6.00 K/9, 1.00 BB/9
Sunday April 20, 1:10pm ET
David Hale (ATL): 2 starts, 0-0, 2.89 ERA, 5.79 K/9, 6.75 BB/9
Zack Wheeler (NYM): 3 starts, 1-2, 4.67 ERA, 7.79 K/9, 2.60 BB/9
