It’s really become sad to watch the Mets season dissipate like this. Pat Misch got rocked by the Braves tonight to the tune of 5 runs in 3 innings. The big blow was a 3-run homer by Jason Heyward in the second inning.
Oliver Perez made a rare appearance in a game tonight and Brian McCann deposited his second pitch in the right field seats.
As usual, the Mets had very little offense with 9 hits and 6 walks. They left 12 runners on base and only Jeff Francoeur (2 for 5) had more than one hit in the game.
The Mets drop the opener of the series as the season winds down.
