After being handed a gift of a victory last night against the Mets, the Braves now look to make good use of that gift by building on it for a potential 6th straight victory.

Mike Minor's the starter for Atlanta, and he will be facing the Mets for the first time this season. Meanwhile the Mets will be countering with Daisuke Matsuzaka, who has only pitched in relief against the Braves so far this season.

Here are the lineups:
