MLB: Game Two-Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves look to end the 2017 season on a good note when they close things out against the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Atlanta will be looking to put an end to a six-game losing streak before heading into what figures to be another busy offseason.

Max Fried will make his fourth start for the Braves and will be looking to build off of a solid effort last time out. Fried pitched in and out of trouble allowing seven hits but just one earned run over 5 1/3 innings in his last start against the Mets.

Fried faced the Marlins once previously this season and was hit hard allowing six hits and and four runs (three earned) in just 3 2/3 innings.

Miami will counter with righty Jose Urena who who has quietly put together a solid season for the Marlins. Urena allowed six runs over five innings in Colorado last time out snapping a streak of four straight starts where he had allowed two runs or less.

Urena has faced the Braves four times this season and is 2-1 with a 2.22 ERA.

Giancarlo Stanton went homerless on Saturday and is sitting on 59 heading into the final day of the regular season. Ender Inciarte sat out the last two games due to a thumb injury.
