The right-hander yielded 8 hits and 7 runs (four earned) over four innings in his last start in San Diego on June 3 (3-7), but pitched well in his previous two starts at Citi Field, allowing 14 hits and 3 runs, while striking out eight over twelve innings against the Braves on April 22 (3-2) and the Washington Nationals on May 3 (0-1).
Gee posted a 3.72 ERA in three starts and a relief appearance at Citi Field in 2015, but is 3-2 with a 2.44 ERA in his last seven starts versus Atlanta.
A.J. Pierzynski is 3-for-3 against Gee, Nick Markakis is 3-for-6, with 1 RBI, while Freddie Freeman is 8-for-35, with 2 HR, 5 RBI and a walk.
On the other hand, Cameron Maybin, Jace Peterson, Andrelton Simmons and Kelly Johnson are a combined 10-for-45.
Mike Foltynewicz (3-2 with a 4.72 ERA), who takes the mound for the Braves in the final game of this series, had big problems in his previous two starts in June, as the right-hander surrendered at least four earned runs in each of them, including a season-high 12 hits and 5 runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Padres last Tuesday (6-5).
Foltynewicz yielded 3 hits and 3 runs over 2 1/3 innings in a relief appearance against the Mets on Sept. 28, 2014 (3-8).
Lucas Duda is 1-for-1, with a two-run home run against him, while Wilmer Flores is 1-for-2.
The Mets scored four or more runs in seven of their last ten home games (5-5) and have .245 BA, with 143 runs and 29 HR at Citi Field so far this season.
The Braves have .283 BA, with 30 runs from their last eight games, but lost eight of the last twelve games between these two teams at Citi Field.
I think that the New York Mets will win the final game of this series, most probably with more than one run difference.
