The New York Mets (37-46) continue their three-game series with the Atlanta Braves (45-38) Tuesday night at Turner Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM. The Braves handed the Mets their seventeenth loss in the month of June to open the series Monday night and close out a brutal month for the Amazins, in which they played sub-.400 ball for the second straight month after finishing April with a 15-11 record. Meanwhile, the Braves are on fire, having won five straight and seven of their last nine.
