Soroka’s six-no hit innings silence Mets as Braves win 2-0

Soroka’s six-no hit innings silence Mets as Braves win 2-0

Braves beat Jacob deGrom to cap a two-game sweep. Freddie Freeman homered off of Jerry Blevins. The Braves and Mets completed an incredibly speedy (two hours and twelve minutes) and exciting game on Wednesday afternoon, highlighted by Mike Soroka’s six no-hit innings in his return from the Disabled List. The Braves scored once in the fourth and again on Freddie Freeman’s solo home run in the eighth as Soroka and the bullpen stifled a woeful Mets offense once again. The real story in this game was the pitching, as both Soroka and deGrom were brutally tough on opposing hitters. Soroka...

Final Score: Braves 2, Mets 0 — Hello, Freeman.

Final Score: Braves 2, Mets 0 — Hello, Freeman.

The Mets must have missed having a losing streak. The Mets dropped their second straight game to the Braves this afternoon, 2-0 in SunTrust Park. The Mets, now officially done with trips to Atlanta this season, couldn’t muster a single run against the Braves’ pitching staff. The Mets were nearly no-hit this afternoon by rookie starter Mike Soroka, until Michael Conforto’s infield single leading off the seventh gave the Mets their second baserunner of the game. Conforto advanced on a wild pitch by Soroka, and found himself on second base with no one out. Unfortunately, the Mets...

Pitching, offense, and defense doom Mets

Pitching, offense, and defense doom Mets

Pretty much everything went wrong. This was quite a roller coaster of a game, but eventually the Mets hit the down slope and kept right on hurtling down the track for an 8-2 loss. In the first few innings it seemed like more of the same with the offense. Mike Foltynewicz looked untouchable for Atlanta, and when Ender Inciarte gave the Braves a 1-0 lead in the fourth, it seemed like there was a real possibility that would be the final score. However, Foltynewicz was lifted after five innings with an injury, which gave the Mets a chance. Todd Frazier walked with one out in the...

Zack Wheeler and Mike Foltynewicz were locked in a pitcher’s duel early until Ender Inciarte broke the scoreless game with a bloop single in the fourth.
