    Mets' Peterson, Braves' Wright Square Off in Atlanta



    A pair of first-round picks from the 2017 MLB Draft will square off on Sunday when the Atlanta Braves host the New York Mets in the third game of a four-game series between the two NL East rivals.

    New York will send left-hander David Peterson (1-0, 3.18 ERA) against Atlanta right-hander Kyle Wright (0-1, 16.88) in the afternoon contest. Peterson was the 20th overall pick in the draft out of the University of Oregon. Wright was the No. 5 pick out of Vanderbilt.

    The Braves won the first two games of the series and have won four straight overall. Atlanta is 4-1 against New York this season.

    Peterson made his big-league debut on July 28 and defeated the Boston Red Sox. He became the 16th Mets pitcher to earn a win in his first game, the first since Steven Matz in 2015 and the first to do it on the road since Zack Wheeler in 2013.

    Peterson worked 5 2/3 innings and gave up two runs on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts against the Red Sox.

    "You can't ask a guy to have a better outing than he had," Mets second baseman Robinson Cano said. "He was filthy. He was putting pitches where he wanted."

    Peterson made 49 appearances, all of them starts, across four levels of New York's minor league system over the previous three years. Last year he played for Double-A Binghamton and struck out 122 batters in 116 innings in 24 starts.

    "His poise, once again, is something that stands out," New York manager Luis Rojas said. "His maturity, how he's able to handle the scenario, that's a great thing."

    Wright earned the spot as the No. 5 man in the Braves' young rotation with a solid Summer Camp.

    He struggled in his first start against the Tampa Bay Rays, when he allowed five runs on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts in just 2 2/3 innings. Wright breezed through the first two innings before running into trouble.

    "We need to keep running him out there," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. "That's the only way he's going to learn is to go out there and pitch. You saw his stuff the first two innings, and that's something really, really good."

    Wright has made two career appearances (one start) against the Mets. The start came in 2019 and he pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed six runs on eight hits and four walks in a losing effort.

    Atlanta shortstop Dansby Swanson and left fielder Marcell Ozuna continue to carry Atlanta's offense. Swanson has hit safely in each of the team's first nine games and is batting .382. Ozuna is batting .467 (7-for-15) over the last five games and leads the team with three homers.

    The Mets are riding the hot bats of Cano and right fielder Michael Conforto. Cano went 2-for-3 on Saturday and is 10-for-16 (.625) over the last five games after starting the season 1-for-12. Conforto went 2-for-4 on Saturday to lift his average to .313 and has reached base in all nine games.

        Braves Beat Mets 4-0 for 5th Win in Row; Cespedes Opts Out


        by MATT WINKELJOHN

        ATLANTA, GA -- Kyle Wright and the Atlanta bullpen combined on a 10-hit shutout and the Braves won their fifth in a row, beating the Mets 4-0 Sunday and blanking a New York lineup that found out late that slugger Yoenis Cespedes had opted out of playing any more this season.

        Wright pitched scoreless ball for 3 1/3 innings despite allowing five hits and issuing four walks. Tyler Matzek (1-0), A.J. Minter, Shane Greene and Mark Melancon blanked New York over the final 5 2/3 innings to send the Mets to their fifth consecutive loss.

        "They've been really good. We've put a lot on them," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said of his bullpen. "It's been all hands on deck. They have been better than expected. Thank goodness because we needed it. Everyone who came out of the bullpen was huge."

        The Mets released a statement from general manager Brodie Van Wagenen in the early innings that said Cespedes, 34, wasn't at the ballpark and the team had been unable to contact him. Van Wagenen said after the game the organization was notified by Cespedes' agent during the loss that he had decided to opt out for "for COVID-related reasons."

        Atlanta has won five in a row against the Mets overall.

        New York had plenty of traffic on the bases, especially against Wright, but he worked around trouble in each of the first three innings.

        "I felt like I was never out of control," Wright said. "I got myself in a lot more jams than I wanted but I felt like I was good managing it. Hopefully limit walks next time."

        Ronald Acuna Jr. drew a bases-loaded walk in the third from David Peterson (1-1). Freddie Freeman added an RBI grounder.

        Johan Camargo hit a solo home run in the fourth.

        Peterson went six innings, striking out eight and allowing Atlanta's first three runs.

        ROSTER MOVES

        The Mets traded for speedy outfielder Billy Hamilton, sending right-hander Jordan Humphreys to the Giants. Hamilton has not played this season, although he was in San Francisco's 60-player pool. He was briefly with the Braves last season.

        New York also traded right-hander Taylor Bashor to the Pirates for cash considerations.

        DON'T MISS YO

        The Braves learned about Cespedes' absence early in the game, and Snitker said Atlanta didn't miss the slugger. His seventh-inning home run was the difference in New York's 1-0 win over the Braves in the season opener.

        "We heard and got the message he wasn't in the ballpark," Snitker said. "Kind of nice to cross his name off and not worry about him."

        ALBIES OUT

        Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies was out of the lineup for the second time in three days, again because of a stiff right wrist. Adeiny Hechavarria started in his place.

        UP NEXT

        Mets: Two-time defending NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob DeGrom (0-0, 1.64 ERA) gets the ball for the series finale Monday night. He started the season opener against Atlanta in a 1-0 New York win.

        Braves: Mike Soroka (0-0, 1.64 ERA) is looking for his first win. He pitched six innings of four-hit ball in the season opener against the Mets.
