Open Thread 8/31: Braves vs. Mets

New, 1107 comments

Coming off of a great series opener, rookie Mike Minor takes the mound against fellow left-hander Jon Niese who has a one-hit complete game shutout under his belt this season. Both pitchers have performed well this year and look to be mainstays in their rotations. Minor had a tremendous outing against the Cubs his last time out, walking one batter and striking out 12 -- breaking the Atlanta Braves rookie record. Mets outfielder Angel Pagan is out of the lineup with a wrist injury, which hurts their team offensively and defensively.

Lineups will be posted in the comment section.
