After Bartolo Colon's superb outing last night, the New York Mets got their road trip off to a winning start with a 4-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves. The Mets will look to make it two in a row when they renew their series with the Braves tonight at 7:10 pm at Turner Field. Zack Wheeler (0-1, 4.50 ERA) will look to pick up his first win of the season for the Mets. The Braves will counter with righty Ervin Santana, who is making his first start of the season for the Mets.
