Braves, Mets try again for series opener

NEW YORK -- The New York Mets' lineup posted by Terry Collins on Tuesday afternoon had Yoenis Cespedes penciled in as the left fielder and third-place hitter. But what were the actual odds Cespedes, who missed the weekend series against the Washington Nationals due to a sore left hamstring, was going to play on a cold and rainy night at Citi Field?

"If we play in this condition," Collins said during his pregame press conference, "you'll be in left field before Cespedes."

Fortunately for the Mets, it didn't come to that.
