The New York Mets have been on an impressive winning streak recently, winning 5 of their last 6 games to demonstrate their determination and ability to thrive under pressure. Unfortunately, history hasn’t always favored them against the Atlanta Braves; over 15 games between these teams in this time, only three victories for the Mets could be found compared to just three for Braves fans – something which may raise concerns.

Jeff McNeil, second baseman for the Mets, has made significant contributions to their offensive output. With 120 hits and 19 doubles to his credit, his ability to find gaps in the field and move runners has been key in both scoring runs and moving runners up the lineup. His OPS of 0.686 and WAR rating of 1.9 reflect this importance to their lineup.
