A pair of talented young southpaws will face off when the Atlanta Braves host the New York Mets on Wednesday in the finale of a three-game series.
Atlanta's Max Fried (7-3, 4.11 ERA) opposes New York's Steven Matz (5-4, 3.93) as the Braves complete a 10-game homestand and prepare for a 10-game road trip.
Fried has not had a good June. He does not have a decision in three starts, but he owns a 7.98 ERA in that span. He failed to make it past the fifth inning in two of those starts. In his last outing on Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies, Fried allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings.
