For the third time in as many nights, the Mets defeated the Braves at Citi Field. Dillon Gee was excellent in his return from the disabled list, the Mets scored four times against Ervin Santana, and the Vic Black and Jenrry Mejia threw a scoreless inning apiece to close out the victory. A Lucas Duda single plated the Mets' first run in the first inning, Kirk Nieuwenhuis had a sacrifice fly in the seventh, and later that inning Travis d'Arnaud hit a no-doubt two-run bomb to left field to put the Mets up 4-1.
That makes four straight wins for the Mets, who entered this four-game series with the Braves ten games back in the division but are playing well at the right time.
