The Atlanta Braves dropped a close one in the opener of Monday’s doubleheader falling to Jacob deGrom and the Mets 4-2. They will look to get that game back in the night cap with Ian Anderson getting the start.
The only addition to the Braves lineup for Game 2 is William Contreras replacing Kevan Smith behind the plate. Contreras will hit seventh with Guillermo Heredia dropping to eighth
Between games, the Mets placed reliever Jeurys Familia on the 10-day injured list with a right hip impingement and recalled Yennsy Diaz. Jerad Eickhoff will get the ball for New York in the second game.
