Series Recap: Mets at Braves

Scott Cunningham

Braves drop three of five in first home series loss of the season.

The series got off to an inauspicious start thanks to an almost four hour rain delay, but that first game ended on a high note thanks to a walk-off home run by Freddie Freeman. It was mostly downhill after that as Atlanta dropped three of the next four against a Mets team that always seems to play the Braves tough this season.

  • Freeman had a fantastic series at the plate, though. The 23-year old had five hits, including the home run and a double. He was also walked six times during the five-game series.
  • Tuesday's doubleheader featured an extremely talented duo of Mets right-handed pitchers in Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. Combining the two games, the two put up a line of 13 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 8 BB, and 20 K's. New York has a potentially potent 1-2 at the top of their rotation for the next few years.
  • David Wright had a big series for the Mets, producing seven hits including two home runs and two doubles.
  • Justin Upton's struggles continued at the plate as he recorded just three hits while playing in four of the five games. However, he did hit some balls hard including one in Wednesday's game that bounced off the facade off the upper deck in foul territory. He also walked twice.
  • Jason Heyward added in five hits of his own while B.J. Upton only had three but made a good amount of hard contact and is still looking like he's getting back on track.
  • The Braves were pretty sloppy on defense this series as they committed seven errors during the series.
