The Braves continued the beatdown the Mets are taking this week with their 7th straight loss. D.J. Carrasco made a spot start for Chris Young and gave up three solo homers to lose the game. The Braves had four solo homers total in the game.

The second game was a combination of no offense, the Mets had 2 hits, and bad pitching by Mike Pelfrey again. He gave up 4 runs in 5 innings on 11 hits and 1 walk. It was another bad start for Pelf but he did lower his season ERA to 9.72. Combine poor performances with stupidity like Daniel Murphy getting thrown out stealing third base with no outs and down by 3 runs, it’s a recipe for disaster.

This is the second sweep of a doubleheader in three days and the first time they’ve been swept in back to back doubleheaders since 1982. This is clearly the worst team we’ve seen the Mets put on the field in recent years. Dillon Gee is going to make a spot start tomorrow and he pitched well at the end of last season. But having to rely on a Triple-A call up to stop a 7 game skid is a tough situation.
