The Mets and Braves continue their series on Friday night in Atlanta at 7:20 p.m. on SNY.
After their 6-3 win over the Braves last night, the Mets own the best winning percentage in the National League (.667). They also moved their road record this season to 6-1. ...Pete Alonso isn't in the lineup tonight, but manager Mickey Callaway said it was a scheduled day off for the rookie. Alonso smashed the hardest-hit home run to dead center field last night at 118.3 mph. That is tied for ninth in the hardest-hit homers ever recorded in the Statcast era. He also leads the league in home runs, RBI (13) and batting average (.667) after the sixth inning.

Who is starting for the Mets?
RHP Zack Wheeler, who had a rough outing against the Nationals last time out. He allowed seven walks and four hits to total seven earned runs over 4.2 innings of work. From the start, Wheeler hit Adam Eaton and it all went downhill from there. He'll look for better control tonight.
Luckily, Wheeler owns a 3.04 ERA in his last nine road starts.
Who is starting for the Braves?
RHP Kyle Wright, who took the loss against the Marlins despite a decent line. He allowed just runs on two solo homers over six innings, while striking out four and walking one.
