By how much will the Braves get shut out today?

Kevin C. Cox

I predict 3-0; Justin Upton strikes out four times with runners in scoring position.

Today's Lineups

NEW YORK METS ATLANTA BRAVES
Eric Young Jr. - LF Emilio Bonifacio - RF
Daniel Murphy - 3B Phil Gosselin - 2B
Travis d'Arnaud - C Freddie Freeman - 1B
Lucas Duda - 1B Justin Upton - LF
Wilmer Flores - SS Chris Johnson - 3B
Curtis Granderson - CF Andrelton Simmons - SS
Eric Campbell - RF Gerald Laird - C
Dilson Herrera - 2B B.J. Upton - CF
Jon Niese - LHP Mike Minor - LHP
