Found August 10, 2012 on 213 Miles From Shea:
The Mets look to improve off of yesterdays win as the suddenly extremely successful Braves come into town. The Braves have been lurking all season but in the last month they have really turned it on catching the Nationals as they can. Matt Harvey gets the nod tonight as he goes up against Paul Maholm. Matt Harvey makes his Citi Field debut, and maybe just as important, his National League East debut. In his first three starts of his career he is 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA allowing 7 ER in 16.1 innings of work. In that stretch he has walked 7 batters while striking out 23. His last outing was his worst as he allowed 8 hits, 5 ER and 2 homers in 5.0 innings of work (but walked only one batter, 3 each in his previous two). Being his rookie season and his first start against the Braves, the Braves have no numbers against him. Paul Maholm is making his second start as a Brave. On the season he is 9-7 with a 3.75 ERA over 127.1 innings. In his first start with the Braves he allowed 3 ER over 7 i...

Paul Maholm Steps Right Up and Beasts the Mets

In his second start since being traded to the Atlanta Braves, Paul Maholm shut out the Mets on Friday night, allowing just 3 hits and walking none while striking out 5.   Maholm, who had faced the minimum through 5.1 innings, needed just 95 pitches to go the distance for his 4th career shutout. He now has a 3.50 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP on the season, both of which would be career bests...

Maholm throws 3-hitter, Braves beat Mets

NEW YORK (AP) -- Paul Maholm pitched a three-hitter in his second start for Atlanta and the Braves got two-run homers from Jason Heyward and Dan Uggla to beat the New York Mets 4-0 Friday night. Heyward connected in the first inning to help spoil Matt Harvey's home debut with the Mets. Uggla went deep in the eighth off reliever Josh Edgin for his first homer in more than a month...

Braves-Mets Preview

Having made all three of his starts on the road since getting called up, Matt Harvey is looking forward to making his Citi Field debut. The 23-year-old rookie, though, appears to have a tough task at hand with the surging Atlanta Braves coming to town. Coming off their first home win in over a month, the New York Mets try to avoid a sixth consecutive defeat to the Braves as these...

Maholm pitches Braves past Mets

NEW YORK -- Atlanta Braves catcher David Ross was a little concerned when starting pitcher Paul Maholm seemed to labor during his pregame bullpen Friday. As it turned out, it was the New York Mets who had plenty to worry about. Maholm continued his red-hot pitching by throwing a three-hit shutout and Jason Heyward and Dan Uggla each hit two-run homers as the Atlanta Braves beat...

Mets vs. Braves: Series Preview

It would be an understatement to say the Mets have been disappointing so far in the second half. It’s time to see what’s in store for them this weekend against the Braves. This is a series between two teams going in completely different directions. The Braves are playing some of their best baseball of the series, going 12-3 over their last 15 games. What about those Mets? Well...

Atlanta Braves (64-47) @ New York Mets (54-58)

This certainly seems like the absolute last chance for the Mets to make any noise in 2012. Sitting 15 games out of the division, and 9.5 out of the Wild Card race, they take on the leader in that department, the Atlanta Braves at home. It could be a longshot calling this series a decision maker for the Mets, but a sweep for New York would be unbelievably timely. But either way right...

Metstradamus The Grouch

Bad enough that Paul Maholm and his 87 mph fastball and his la-de-da slider made the Mets look like a JV high school squad tonight as he threw a complete game three-hit shutout while only throwing 36 pitches (95, if you're into accuracy). Bad enough that Matt Harvey couldn't get rewarded for pulling it together after a rough start chocked full of walks and giving up only...
