Mets’ magical run grinds to halt as Braves finish off sweep

In a good news/bad news proposition for the Mets, they finish the season with three games against the Braves at Citi Field. By then, there is a strong chance the Braves won’t be playing for anything and resting key players for the postseason, so that could sound appealing for a Mets team that may need...

Final Score: Braves 2, Mets 1 - Sunday blues

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The Met’s offense was anemic again, and they suffered their third straight loss. Steven Matz’s excellent start wasn’t enough, and Braves completed a sweep of the Mets with a 2-1 victory. Matz tossed six innings of one run ball to continue his second-half run, while Paul Sewald and Justin Wilson also looked good in relief. Two home runs from Met-killer Josh Donaldson were all the Braves needed, however, as the Mets’ offense failed to show until it was too late. It was the second time in three starts that Dallas Keuchel has absolutely shut down the...

Mets recall Chris Mazza, option Chris Flexen to Triple-A

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports The Mets are swapping arms in their bullpen. Prior to today’s series finale against the Atlanta Braves, the New York Mets made a move to swap Chrises in their bullpen. The team announced that they had called up right-hander Chris Mazza from Syracuse while optioning Chris Flexen to Triple-A. The Mets brought Flexen up and DFA’ed Ruben Tejada on Thursday. In last night’s game, Flexen made his first major league appearance since June 30 after Edwin Diaz exited his outing with trap tightness in the ninth inning. Flexen recorded the final two outs but also...

The Braves last played the Mets in mid-August and won two of three from the Amazins in Atlanta, slowing down a resurgent unit that currently sits just two games out of the second NL Lightning Round spot. This weekend, the venue has changed, but a lot has stayed the same: the Braves have already won the series, they won their second Max Fried v. Zach Wheeler matchup in August last night, and this afternoon, Dallas Keuchel will again duel Steven Matz. If the Braves...

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets fell to the Braves for the second straight night by a score of 9-5, as Zack Wheeler put the Mets in a 4-1 hole early. However, the Mets battled back, punctuated by Pete Alonso’s 41st home run of the season—a three-run shot that tied the franchise single season home run record. However, Zack Wheeler was unable to protect the lead and the bullpen combined with some poor defense allowed the Braves to open up another lead in the late innings, which they would hold on...

Two comebacks too much to ask for as Mets fall to Braves for second straight night

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The team overcame one four-run deficit, but they couldn’t overcome a second one. The Mets took the field on Saturday night hoping to redeem themselves after a miserable 14-inning affair in which their bats could do nothing to support Jacob deGrom. The offense did a little bit better this time around, but it wasn’t enough to make up for the underwhelming performance by Zack Wheeler and the inability of the bullpen to keep the Braves off the board, and the result was a 9-5 loss. Wheeler surrendered a one-out walk to Ozzie Albies in the first inning, which...

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The new guy was very good this evening. The Braves are Mets were back at it Saturday night with another fun pitching match up set to occur. Zack Wheeler was the first man up, and was also the first man to run into some trouble. Both pitchers made it through the first inning unscathed, but Wheeler walked two Braves consecutively in front of Francisco Cervelli who promptly deposited a two-run double into the left field corner. Both runners came around to score and the Braves found themselves up 2-0 early on. Atlanta continued to add on in the third inning...

After a heartbreaking 14-inning loss to open the series on Friday, the Mets once again lost a crucial game against the Atlanta Braves. They went down to their division rivals 9-5 and lost more ground in the wild card race in the process. Zack Wheeler got the start for the Mets, and it was apparent early on that he did not have it.
