Morning Briefing: Mets look to take series

NEW YORK FIRST PITCH: The New York Mets will try to win a series from the Atlanta Braves for the third time this season when the two teams play Thursday night at Citi Field. There's a chance David Wright could return to the lineup for the first time since he left Sunday's game in Los Angeles with neck spasms. The Mets and Braves split a pair of 3-2 games the last two nights. The Mets are 7-4 in one-run games since the All-Star break, after going 13-22 in the first half.
