Mets vs Braves: Duda Hitting Cleanup, Satin Batting Third Against Righty, It’s Torres Day
New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves
Turner Field • 7:10 PM
RHP Carlos Torres (3-2, 2.77) vs RHP Kris Medlen (11-12, 3.58)
- Eric Young, Jr. – LF
- Daniel Murphy – 2B
- Josh Satin – 3B
- Lucas Duda – 1B
- Travis d’Arnaud – C
- Juan Lagares – RF
- Matt den Dekker – CF
- Omar Quintanilla – SS
- Carlos Torres – RHP
The 3-4-5 spots offer a new surprise everyday it seems. Seeing Duda back at cleanup scares me, and d’Arnaud jumps into the number five spot to protect him.
I am kind of pleased to see Satin getting so many reps batting third, and while I’m used to it against a lefthander, he’s getting a shot there against one of the better righthanders in the league in Medlen.
I guess Collins has settled in with Murphy in the two hole and once again den Dekker gets centerfield over Lagares.
This would have been a Harvey Day, but we settle for a Torres day instead. So may your Torres day be a bright and happy one.

The Mets look to move past their awful performance yesterday as they start game two of this series against the Braves. Yesterday, on very short rest, the Mets were trampled 13-5 by the Braves. Today Carlos Torres tries to make it a different story against Kris Medlen. Carlos Torres is 3-2 on the season over 55.1 innings of work with a 2.77 ERA. His last outing against Philly was a good one as he allowed 1 ER over 4 hits and 6.2 innings. Carlos has pitched 8.1 innings against the Braves allowing only 1 ER, 8 hits and striking out 10. The Braves have the following numbers against Torres:
J Upton 0-5
Johnson, 1-5, 2B
Simmons 2-4, 2B, HR
The Mets bats get yet another look at Kris Medlen who is 11-12 pitching 161.0 innings with an ERA of 3.58. In the month of June he pitched 6 games with 36.0 innings of work and an ERA of 3.00. He’s pitched 18.0 innings in three games against the Mets with a 3.93 ERA. The Mets have the following numbers against Medlen:
Davis 5-21, 2B, HR
Murphy 5-22, 2B
Lets Go Mets!
