The Atlanta Braves will wrap up the 2021 regular season Sunday against the New York Mets. Charlie Morton is expected to pitch two or three innings for Atlanta in his final tune up before the NLDS. The Mets will go with right-hander Noah Syndergaard who will be making his second appearance following Tommy John surgery.
After two straight days of trying to rest their regulars, the Braves will go back to their regular lineup for the finale. Freddie Freeman had two hits in Saturday’s win and is now hitting an even .300 going into the final day.
For the Mets, Dominic Smith is back in left field and will hit fifth while Jonathan Villar drops to sixth and will play third base. Patrick Mazeika will start behind the plate and hit eighth.
