The Atlanta Braves sit in second place in the NL east division one and a half games ahead of the New York Mets in the standings.

The pitching matchup looks very good today as All Star R.A. Dickey will take the mound for the Mets as he will oppose Tommy Hanson of the Braves. Dickey in 17 starts in the 2012 campaign sports a record of 12-1 with an ERA of 2.40 and WHIP of 0.93. Dickey has been hit in recent outings by allowing five earned runs and seven hits to the Phillies one start back and three starts ago allowed five earned runs in six innings to the New York Yankees. In his last start at Atlanta the Mets knuckleballer was crushed allowing 8 earned runs and eight hits with three homers in 4 1/3rd innings on April 18th. Tommy Hanson is 10-5 on the season with an ERA of 3.71 in 18 starts. In two starts against the Mets on the year the Braves right hander allowed a combined five earned runs and six hits over 12 innings of work.
