Kurt Suzuki got things started early with a two-run home run off Mets starter Matt Harvey to extend the Braves lead to 3-0. Suzuki had a big night at the plate going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI.
Preston Tucker also had quite a day himself with a pair of double and a team-high 5 RBI. Tucker now leads the team with 18 RBI in 18 games.
As good as the offense was, Matt Wisler was the real story in this one. Called up to replace Anibal Sanchez in the rotation, Wisler turned in one of the best performances of his career allowing two hits and one run over seven innings while striking out 8.
The #Braves scored their 100th run of the season tonight, becoming the first Atlanta club since 1999 to reach triple digits by game No. 18. The Braves’ 104 runs this season are the most in the National League. #ChopOn pic.twitter.com/mbDaJfimyU— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) April 20, 2018
