After a thrilling win in the first game of the doubleheader, the Atlanta Braves will try to get back to .500 in the nightcap against the New York Mets. Bryse Wilson will get the start for the Braves while the Mets will go with left-hander Aaron Loup to begin a bullpen game.

Guillermo Heredia will move up to the sixth spot in Game 2. Abraham Almonte gets the start in left field while Kevan Smith will be behind plate and hitting eighth.

The Mets’ lineup will have a different look against the right-hander in Game 2. Brandon Nimmo will lead off and play centerfield. Jeff McNeil returns to the lineup and will be hitting third. James McCann is hitting eighth and will be behind the plate.
