This game felt like Mets-Braves games of years recently past. Oliver Perez had a pretty good start, keeping the Mets in the game. He went 6 innings giving up 3 runs and left with the game in a tie. The bullpen came in a let the game go. Then the Mets couldn’t put up any offense after the fourth inning. And of course, Chipper Jones was the one to hit the tie-breaking RBI single in the seventh inning.
Bobby Parnell was terrible again giving up 2 hits to the two batters he faced. Pedro Feliciano and Pat Misch threw some gas on the fire as well.
The Mets only had 6 hits and 3 walks in the game. As usual, they only had 1 hit after the sixth inning.
The Mets drop the first game of the four game series in Atlanta.
