Despite their offensive struggles of late, the Mets managed to win both their games against the defending champs this week. However, they are still just 4-6 in their last 10, including a three-game sweep at the hands of the Braves this past weekend in New York. Now the battle heads south where the Braves and Mets open a four-game series in Atlanta.

The Braves will send Matt Wisler to the mound against Matt Harvey, who allowed four runs in six innings against against Atlanta in his previous start; Wisler's last start came against the Reds last Thursday and held them to two runs in 6.2 innings.

Wisler has made a habit out of beating the Mets: he allowed just one hit in eight shutout innings against them in his only other start against them this year back on May 3, and is 3-1 in four starts with a 1.55 ERA overall, allowing just a .186 batting avg.

The Mets have scored just 10 runs in their last five games, which includes the sweep by the Braves. Despite that, Asdrubal Cabrera (7-22), Yoenis Cespedes (6-18), and new acquisition James Loney (8-21) are all hitting well over .300 over the past week.
