The Braves Look to Make it 3 in a Row Against Santana and the Mets

Posted by m1fournier on May 11, 2009

mlb_a_lowe1_sw_576Tonight the Atlanta Braves, lead by Derek Lowe(4-1), will face the New York Mets and Johan Santana(4-1) at 7:30pm at Citi Field. The Braves look to not only get to Santana with their bats, raise his 0.91 ERA, and also beat the Mets for the first time this year. johan The Braves just got their star catcher, Brian McCann back and outfielder Garret Anderson, and now Chipper Jones goes down with another injury. Jones  said it is 50% that he will play tonight. He did however say that there is a greater chance that he will be in the lineup Tuesday!

D. Lowe is pitching against the Mets for the first time after deciding to sign with Braves and not the Mets. This is a big test for the Braves team to build some momentum and hopefully keep their modest winning streak going and gain some ground in the standings.
