Mets vs Braves Predictions

Mets vs Braves Predictions

One of the marquee matchups on the Tuesday MLB schedule will take place in Atlanta, as the Braves host the New York Mets in NL East competition. Both of these teams came into this season with championship aspirations, but only the Braves have lived up to their high expectations through the first two months of the season. Here, the Mets will look for a win to make a statement to the rest of the league that their best baseball is still to come.

New York Mets Predictions

The New York Mets come into Tuesday as a .500 ballclub, posting a record of 30-30 on the year. They have lost three games in a row coming into this contest, as they were swept over the weekend by the Toronto Blue Jays. In this contest, the Mets will aim to get back into the win column, though that could be hard to do given the pitching disadvantage they face at the start of this matchup.

Carlos Carrasco is on the hill to start this game for the Mets, who has really struggled in his 31.1 innings of work thus far. Carrasco is 2-2 on the season, but he has been leaking runs against his opponents this year, posting a 5.74 ERA along the way. He has allowed six home runs in his short time on the mound this year, which could be a huge concern against a team as potent offensively as Atlanta.

If Carrasco struggles again in this game, the Mets may have to fight offensive firepower with offensive firepower. Fortunately, the Mets have Pete Alonso to help provide plenty of that. Alonso has 21 home runs so far this year, which leads Major League Baseball. But it will take a lot more than Alonso’s bat to help the Mets win what could be a high scoring game down South.

Atlanta Braves Predictions

The Atlanta Braves enter Tuesday’s MLB action on a two-game winning streak, having taken two out of three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Atlanta leads the NL East by three games over the Miami Marlins and 5.5 games over the Mets going into Tuesday’s slate. In this game, they send Bryce Elder to the mound, who has been a revelation for a Braves team with championship aspirations.

So far this season, Elder is 3-0 with a stingy 1.92 ERA in 65.2 innings of work. Elder has been great about avoiding truly hard contact this year, as he has allowed just four home runs in more than double the amount of innings that Carrasco has pitched this season. Elder’s ability to prevent the home run ball will be especially important when Alonso is at the plate, as keeping him in the yard will be the key to Atlanta’s success.

Offensively, the Braves rank fifth in baseball in runs scored so far this year. Against a struggling starting pitcher in the opposite dugout, this could be a breakout game for the Braves at the plate. But they will need to make sure to come out and play within themselves offensively, as being overly aggressive could help Carrasco produce one of his better outings of the 2023 season in Atlanta.
