Game Thread 6/14: Braves at Mets

If the first two games of this series are any indication, then the rubber game between the Braves and Mets should be an extremely exciting affair.

After two action-packed games, the Braves and Mets are going to square off in the rubber game of what's been an extremely interesting series. It's been close and hard-fought throughout, but that's normally the case when these two teams face off.

Today, we were supposed to see the Mets send Noah Syndergaard to the mound, but I guess that they're still doing that whole six-man rotation thing, because there's been a change of plans since our series preview. Dillon Gee is today's starter, and he'll be squaring off against Mike Foltynewicz. It isn't exactly the battle of two hot prospects that we advertised, but it should still be an interesting pitching matchup nonetheless.

Here are the lineups:
