New York Mets complete the sweep of the Atlanta Braves

The New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia and the final score was 2-1.  Seth Lugo started for the Mets and he pitched well and the bullpen did their job.  Michael Conforto had two hits to lead the offense. 

Lugo pitched seven innings giving up six hits and a run.  He walked two and struck out six and won his first game of the season.  Jerry Blevins pitched an inning with a strikeout and Addison Reed pitched an inning with two strikeouts and saved his 11th game of the season. 

Jaime Garcia started for the Braves and pitched seven innings giving up seven hits and two runs with two walks and nine strikeouts and lost his fifth game of the season.  Arodys Vizcaino pitched a perfect inning, Jose Ramirez pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a walk and Ian Krol pitched to one batter and retired him. 

Conforto had two hits, Juan Lagares had a hit and an RBI and Wilmer Flores had an RBI.  Jay Bruce had a hit, Neil Walker had a hit and drew a walk and Asdrubal Cabrera drew a walk.  Jose Reyes had a hit and drew a walk, Lugo had a hit and Curtis Granderson had a hit.  Conforto, Lugo and Bruce each hit a double.  The Mets were 2-12 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Reyes had a stolen base and was caught stealing. 

Ender Inciarte had a hit and drew a walk, Nick Markakis had two hits and Matt Kemp had a hit and drew a walk.  Tyler Flowers had a hit, Dansby Swanson had an RBI and Garcia had a hit.  Flowers hit a double and the Braves were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. 

In the first Flores hit a sac fly giving the Mets a 1-0 lead.  In the second Swanson hit a sac fly to tie the game at one and in the third Lagares hit an RBI single giving the Mets a 2-1 lead which would hold up as that would be the final score. 
The Mets will begin a series with the Chicago Cubs on Monday night at Citi Field
