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.
