Quick Recap: Braves 2, Mets 0 — Mike Minor Is Major Pain

Chris Young was good, but the Mets' bats were no match for the Braves' pitching.

Even though Chris Young pitched well in his final start of the season — six innings, six strikeouts, and two walks with two runs allowed on seven hits — the Mets just couldn't do anything against Mike Minor and the Braves' outstanding bullpen.

Atlanta plated the first run of the game in the bottom of the first on a ground out by Jason Heyward. Young kept them off the board until the sixth, when Martin Prado doubled in a run to put the Braves up by two. That was more than enough to beat the Mets, who managed just three hits and didn't draw a single walk in Minor's six-and-one-third innings.

Jonnny Venters allowed two singles in the eighth, but the first was erased on a double play. The second didn't come around to score, either. The Mets got a rare pair of baserunners against Craig Kimbrel thanks to a Dan Uggla error and a pitch that plunked David Wright's thigh, but again, they weren't able to score.

We knew it was over when...

The Mets failed to score against Venters in the eighth.

What else?

  • Young finishes the year with a decent 4.15 ERA, 6.26 K/9, and 2.82 BB/9 in 115 innings spanning twenty starts.
