The season continued to dwindle away toward meaningless August and September games tonight. Even the alternate “Los Mets” uniforms couldn’t help this team’s offense. The Mets had next to none with only 4 hits off Braves pitching and couldn’t get anything going against Tim Hudson after an RBI double by David Wright in the first inning. Wright went 2 for 4 and there wasn’t much happening in the lineup after him.

R.A. Dickey pitched really well but went into double-digit losses tonight (5-10). He threw 7 innings and allowed 2 runs, good enough to win with a decent team behind him. Tim Byrdak and Ryota Igarashi allowed a pair of insurance runs for the Braves in the eighth and the game was over. The back of the Braves bullpen doesn’t give up leads.
