Braves auditioning No. 2 starter against Mets

Staff ace Max Fried returned to the mound in good health and in a successful fashion Friday night. Next, the Atlanta Braves will get another look at promising rookie Ian Anderson, who could be their No. 2 starter in the postseason.

After Friday night, the New York Mets are merely hoping the "2" in their 1-2 pitching punch isn't an infielder.

The Braves will look to clinch a series win and move closer to locking up a playoff berth when they visit the Mets in the middle game of a three-game set on Saturday. The right-handed Anderson (3-0, 1.64 ERA) is scheduled to oppose left-hander David Peterson (4-2, 4.17) in a battle of rookies.
