Francisco Lindor leads the Mets with 168 hits and 103 RBI, while Jeff McNeil and Pete Alonso have combined for 326 hits and 191 RBI. Chris Bassitt gets the ball, and he is 15-8 with a 3.27 ERA and 165 strikeouts this season. Bassitt is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.
The Atlanta Braves have scored 11 runs in their last 11 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 7 games. The Braves have won 11 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs.

The Mets are 8-2 in their last 10 Sunday games and 9-4 in their last 13 overall. The Braves are 40-12 in their last 52 home games and 75-32 in their last 107 overall. The over is 19-7 in Mets last 26 overall. The over is 5-2 in Braves last 7 overall. The Mets are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
Chris Bassitt has been great this season, especially these last 2 months, but he's been hit or miss on the road, and he's allowing a .286 batting average in 49 at bats against current Braves. Charlie Morton hasn't been good in his last 27.1 innings, allowing 23 hits and 16 runs. We're also due for an offensive breakout between these teams after two fairly low scoring contests. I'll take a stab with the over.
