The Braves will look to move into first place in the NL East on Wednesday night, when they face the host Mets in the middle contest of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Mets third baseman Todd Frazier is asking for a meeting with Commissioner Rob Manfred over his growing frustration with the way umpires are calling balls and strikes. He told the coaching staff he could continue pitching and returned to the mound in the fourth. deGrom then removed himself from the game one inning later, the Athletic's report says. Max Scherzer is 6-1 after winning his fifth straight start, allowing two runs and three hits while striking out eight in 6 1/3 innings.

The ace was sent for an MRI, and the team expects to get results Thursday. He threw just 46 pitches.

Braves: Pushed back a day when Soroka was called up, LHP Sean Newcomb (1-1, 4.23 ERA) pitches the middle game of the series Wednesday night. A half-inning later, NY second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera and second base umpire Bill Welke stooped around the base, apparently picking up pieces of the necklace. He was relieved by Pedro Baez. The Tuesday night lineup marked the first time in nearly 40 years one team started the three youngest players in the game.

Freddie Freeman, whose RBI single in the sixth inning broke a scoreless tie, began a four-run flurry in the eighth by singling with one out.
