Much of the Atlanta Braves' early-season success can be attributed to their performance against two big National League East rivals, the Mets and Phillies.

The Braves host both clubs this week, beginning with a three-game series against the Mets on Tuesday. The Phillies visit Atlanta on Friday.

So far this season, Atlanta is 4-2 against the Mets and 5-1 against the Phillies.
