Game Thread 7/2: Braves Vs. Mets

New, comments
Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

A sweep could potentially be on the cards tonight, as the Braves will be trying to get their 7th straight victory as well in the process. With Julio Teheran on the mound, those chances should go up exponentially.

It also helps that the Mets will be sending a relatively inexperienced pitcher to the mound, as Jacob deGrom will be handling the starting pitching duties for New York. The Mets have also shaken things up in their lineup a bit, as you'll see below. Meanwhile, the Braves are going with what's been working as of late.

Here's the lineups:
