Bay's Grand Slam Not Enough To Help Mets In Game One

The Mets lost game one of their doubleheader with the Braves, 6-5.

  • Chris Schwinden made his Major League debut in game one and wasn't all that impressive in his five innings of work. He allowed three runs to score in the first inning after giving up a two-run double to Freddie Freeman and an RBI single to Martin Prado. He would give up two more runs in the third inning. Chipper Jones took Schwinden deep for his 16th home run of the season.
  • Jason Bay hit a grand slam in the bottom of the first inning to give the Mets a 4-3 lead. This was Bay's second grand slam of the season.
  • The Mets only other run of the game came in the eighth inning on an RBI ground out by Nick Evans.
  • Ryota Igarashi was ineffective. After loading the bases, he was replaced by Tim Byrdak who promptly hit the first batter he faced to force in Atlanta's sixth run of the game.
  • Bobby Parnell was brought in to pitch in a non-save situation with one out in the ninth inning. He didn't allow a run.
