The New York Mets lose to the Atlanta Braves

The New York Mets were defeated by the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night.  The game took place at Turner Field in Atlanta, Georgia and the final score was 3-1.  Jake deGrom started for the Mets and pitched ok and the bullpen was good.  Eric Young Jr. and Juan Lagares each had two hits and that was the Mets offense. 

deGrom pitched five innings giving up six hits and three runs with two walks and eight strikeouts.  He suffered his fifth loss of the season.  Vic Black pitched a perfect inning with a couple of strikeouts, Jeurys Familia pitched an inning giving up two hits and a strikeout and Josh Edgin pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a walk and a strikeout.  Jennry Mejia pitched to one batter and retired him. 

Julio Teheran pitched seven innings giving up four hits and a run with three walks and five strikeouts.  He won his eighth game of the season.  Anthony Varvaro pitched an inning giving up a hit and striking out one and Jordan Walden saved his third game of the season.  Walden pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts. 

Young Jr. and Lagares each had two hits and Curtis Granderson had an RBI and drew a walk.  Daniel Murphy drew a walk, Eric Campbell had a hit and Travis d'Arnaud drew a walk.  The Mets were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Young Jr. had a stolen base and was caught stealing. 

B.J. Upton had a hit, Andrelton Simmons had two hits and drew a walk and Freddie Freeman had a hit and drew a walk.  Jason Heyward had a hit, Chris Johnson had two hits and three RBI and La Stella drew a walk.  Teheran had a hit, Johnson hit a double and the Braves were 1-10 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Simmons had a stolen base and Teheran had a pickoff. 

In the first Johnson hit a three run double to give the Braves a 3-0 lead.  The Mets would score their only run in the fourth inning.  Granderson hit a sacrifice fly and that would be all the scoring in the game as the Braves won 3-1.  The Mets will have the day off on Thursday and then begin a homestand on Friday night against the Texas Rangers.
