TBS will host Tuesday’s matchup between the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves, with first pitch set for 7:20 p.m. ET. The TBS game will take place at Truist Park in Atlanta, Georgia, and will air on SNY in the Mets market and Bally Sports South in the Braves market. New York will turn to righty Carlos Carrasco (2-2, 5.74 ERA), while rookie sensation Bryce Elder (3-0, 1.92) hopes to continue his hot start to his Major League career.

The Mets remain incapable of getting out of their own way, entering play on Monday at 30-30 and 5.5 games back of Atlanta in the NL East. Whenever it seems like they’ve built a little bit of momentum, it’s one step forward, one step back — like last week, when they took two of three from the Philadelphia Phillies only to get swept at home by the Toronto Blue Jays. Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer have begun to round into form, so naturally the offense has now gone into the tank, with New York scoring just 15 runs over its last six games. There’s still plenty of talent here on paper, but the Mets look like a far thinner team than they appeared at the start of the year.

Eddie Rosario’s dramatic ninth-inning grand slam salvaged a series win against the Arizona Diamondbacks over the weekend, but this is an Atlanta team that feels like it’s treading water a bit — they’ve gone just 17-15 since they’re scorching April. The division hasn’t presented a challenger just yet, but the Braves’ starting pitching has to be a concern at the moment: With Max Fried and Kyle Wright on the IL, there’s not much in the way of depth behind Spencer Strider, Charlie Morton and Elder. Granted, a lot of teams would kill for a top three like that, but Morton has cooled off recently, while Elder could be due for some regression. It’s putting a lot of pressure on Atlanta’s offense, but Ronald Acuna Jr. and Co. appear up for the task so far.

The Braves enter as -160 favorites on the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the Mets the +140 underdogs. The run total is set at 10.
