Reigning NL East champs the Braves welcome division rivals the New York Mets on Saturday, hoping to replicate their series win at Citi Field earlier this week.

The Braves sealed their first series victory of the season with a crushing 14-1 final, a defeat that the Mets will be desperate to make amends for at SunTrust Park.

That match saw Braves star Darby Swanson live up to some of the pre-season hype that has some pundits tipping him to be one of 2020's breakout players, with the 26-year-old notching up five RBIs. He went on to follow that impressive display by going 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, an RBI, plus a stolen base in Atlanta's midweek 7-4 win over Tampa Bay.

Freddie Freeman also looks in fine form following his recovery from Covid-19, notching up four hits and drives in three runs for the Braves' during Wednesday's win over the Rays.

The Mets travel to Atlanta having rebuilt some of their dented confidence by shelling the Red Sox for 18 runs during the first two games of their series earlier this week at Fenway Park.
