The rubber match game between the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves will be an early bird special as the teams square off at 12:10 p.m. in Turner Field.  R.A. Dickey will face off against Jair Jurrjens for the second time this season in a rematch of their April 7 showdown.

New York will hope the results (a Mets win) will be the same this time around and for Dickey, well he will have his sights set on a tying a longstanding club record.


If R.A. Dickey throws a 15th straight quality start today, it will be the longest streak by a Met since Dwight Gooden had same length. about 1 hour ago via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite @AdamRubinESPN Adam Rubin

Looks like Captain Kirk will get the start and leadoff for New York as Ronny Cedeno starts at short in place of Ruben Tejada, who gets the day off.


TC said before series opener he was leery of putting Niewenhuis in leadoff spot against Jurrjens. Must have likes what’s he’s seen in series 50 minutes ago via EchofonReplyRetweetFavorite @AdamRubinESPN Adam Rubin

There had been some speculation that rain might cause a delay at some point but apparently the forecast is clearing up a bit.
