The Mets and Braves play game two tonight at Citi Field. Last night the Mets just could not get the bats going to score runs against the Braves, and they hope to reverse that as they take on Kris Medlen. Santana will be making his first start coming off of the DL. Last weekend Johan made a rehab start in Brooklyn (see pictures/story here). On the season Johan is 6-7 with a 3.98 ERA over 110.2 innings. His season debut was against the Braves as he shut them down for five innings. His starts after that were a much different story as he allowed 4 ER, 6 total in 1.1 innings in April and 6 ER in 5 innings in July. The Braves have the following numbers against Santana:
McCann 9-35, 2B, 3 HR
Johnson 16-31, 2 2B, 3B, 2 HR
Chipper 9-30, HR
Prado 5-24, 2 2B
Uggla 1-21, HR
The Mets bats look to tee off of Kris Medlen who is 2-1 this season over 40 games, 2 starts while posting an ERA of 2.37. His last two outings have both been starts totaling 10.1 innings and 2 ER. He has pitched 9.1 innings against the Mets this year and has allowed only one earned run. The Mets have the following numbers against Kris:
Davis 2-9, HR
Cedeno 2-5, 2B
Tejada 1-4, 2B
Hairston 1-3, 2B
Let’s Go Mets!
