The Atlanta Braves look for a series win against the Mets on Sunday in New York’s last trip to Turner Field. The Braves rallied for a 10th inning walk-off win on Saturday and will try to make it two straight with Williams Perez on the mound Sunday.

Perez had a rough outing in his first game back after a two-month stay on the disabled list. He allowed eight hits and six runs in just 2 13 innings against the Nationals on September 6. That his first start since June 6 due to strained rotator cuff. Perez has made 10 starts for the Braves this season and is 2-2 with a 5.47 ERA.

The Mets will counter with Seth Lugo who was originally slated to start Saturday’s game but had his start pushed back due to a lingering blister. Lugo has been somewhat of a revelation for the Mets since joining the rotation in mid-August. He tossed seven innings of one run ball in a win over the Nationals last time out.
