The 50-43 New York Mets will play the first game of a three-game set against the 48-44 Toronto Blue Jays. After taking the series (2-1) against the Reds at The Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, the Mets look to take two of three here at home as well.

The Mets plan to send right-hander Tyler Megill to the hill, making his seventh appearance of the season. The Long Beach, California native is 1-0 with a 2.10 ERA and has 33 K’s in 30.0 innings pitched.

Megill’s last outing came against the Blue Jays back at Citi Field, and was a gem. He went on to throw 6.0 scoreless innings as he gave up just two hits and and struck out five. That makes back to back scoreless appearances for Megill, only haven given up 1 run in the last 19.2 innings pitched.

The Atlanta Braves will have 30-year old lefty Max Fried on the mound, a former first round pick with the Padres. In his last start, Fried picked up his 6th loss by pitching five innings against the Texas Rangers while giving up four earned runs.

Fried, so far is having a average season, pitching to a 4.46 ERA but owning an impressive 7-6 record. The Santa Monica, California native has also struck out 85 batters in 84.2 innings pitched, so far this season.
