Mets Swept In Doubleheader With Braves

The Mets lost game two of their doubleheader with Atlanta, 5-1.

  • Dillon Gee went six innings, giving up three runs on four hits, while striking out six and walking two. He allowed a first inning run to Atlanta on a single off the bat of Dan Uggla. Gee then went on to retire the next ten batters he faced. Atlanta tagged on another run in the fifth inning on an RBI single by David Ross. After giving up a leadoff double to Jack Wilson in the seventh inning, Gee was replaced by Daniel Herrera. A few at-bats later, Wilson would come around to score on sacrifice fly from Chipper Jones.
  • The only run of the game for the Mets was scored in the first inning courtesy of a Jason Bay sacrifice fly.
  • The Mets were 0-6 with runners in scoring position, and they left eight men on base.
  • Pedro Beato was called upon to pitch the eighth and ninth innings. After throwing a 1-2-3 eighth, he allowed two runs to score in the ninth.

Next Up: The Mets will send Mike Pelfrey to the mound as they start a three-game series against the Cubs tomorrow night. Game time is 7:10 p.m.
