PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves LH Dallas Keuchel (4-5, 4.14 ERA) vs. Mets LH Steven Matz (8-7, 4.18)

Keuchel signed with the Braves in early June and in 12 starts since making his debut, the results have been effective: six starts with two or fewer earned runs allowed, and seven starts of at least six innings pitched. The 31-year-old has rebounded from a miserable eight-run, 10-hit outing Aug. 8 at Miami, surrendering one run on 11 hits with 14 strikeouts over 12 innings across his past two outings. The first of those two starts marked his first career appearance against the Mets on Aug. 14, in which he gave up five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across six shutout innings.

Matz has helped fuel the Mets second-half surge, pitching to a 2.81 ERA with 38 strikeouts in 41 2/3 innings across his past seven starts while allowing two earned runs or fewer six times in that span. The 28-year-old beat Cleveland in his last start Tuesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings of a 9-2 triumph. Matz allowed one run on two hits across six innings against the Braves in a no-decision Aug. 14, and is 5-1 with a 3.39 ERA in 11 career starts against Atlanta.
