The Atlanta Braves broke out for six homers and 15 runs in Friday’s series opener against the Mets. They will look for more of the same Saturday in support of Ian Anderson who will be making his fifth start of the season.

Brian Snitker will roll out a different looking lineup against Mets left-hander David Peterson. Ozzie Albies launched two more homers in Friday’s win and has been red hot since returning from the injured list. He will hit sixth and ahead of Dansby Swanson who drops to seventh. Tyler Flowers gets the start behind the plate but Travis d’Arnaud sticks in the lineup as the DH against the lefty.

For the Mets, Pete Alonso returns to the lineup as the DH and will be hitting sixth. Brandon Nimmo is back in the lineup as well and will lead off and play center field. Andres Gimenez gets the start at shortstop while Robinson Chirinos will be behind the plate.

First pitch from Citi Field is scheduled for 7:07 p.m. ET and can be seen on FOX.
