Braves-Mets Preview

(AP) -- Julio Teheran is among the Atlanta Braves' most promising pitchers and Zack Wheeler is looking every bit like one for the New York Mets.

In the first matchup between two of baseball's top young arms, Teheran will try to halt the Braves' three-game slide Wednesday night in the middle game of this series at Citi Field.

A first-time All-Star this year, Teheran (12-9, 2.96 ERA) leads Atlanta (68-64) starters in ERA, strikeouts (156) and innings pitched (182 2-3).
