Final Score: Braves 3, Mets 1 — Sweep dreams denied by bumpy first

Elsa

The Mets failed to execute a four-game sweep of the Braves as Bartolo Colon struggled through another rough first inning and the hitters found themselves powerless in the face of Aaron Harang.

Bartolo Colon's first inning troubles persisted as he allowed two runs in the initial frame on a Freddie Freeman RBI double and a Jason Heyward bloop single, and the Braves tacked on in the top of the third on a run-scoring double play groundout. The Mets got back one of those runs on a David Wright RBI single in the bottom half, but could manage no more against the baffling Aaron Harang, who stifled them for seven innings. A brief hint of a rally in the bottom of the eighth was extinguished when Craig Kimbrel converted a four-out save, denying the Mets the four-game sweep of Atlanta.

Full recap to come.
