The Mets rallied back from an 8-3 deficit to beat the Braves today at Citi Field this afternoon. Dillon Gee's one-off start went poorly. The righty allowed one run in the first, a three-run homer in the second, another run in the third, and three more runs in a fourth inning he did not complete. Alex Torres recorded the final out of that one. It was Gee's second straight miserable start, and the third consecutive appearance in which he has allowed a home run. Thankfully for the Mets, the bullpen redeemed itself nicely today, as Sean Gilmartin, Hansel Robles, Bobby Parnell, and Jeurys Familia combined to keep the Braves off the board from the fifth inning on.
On the other side of things, the Mets offense showed more resilience than they have all year, albeit with an assist from the ineptitude of the Braves' pitchers. The Mets got five runs of their own off of Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz, including Darrell Ceciliani's first home run in the majors that started the Mets' comeback in the bottom of the fourth. After that, Dilson Herrera, Travis d'Arnaud, and Juan Lagares homered to make the score 8-5, 8-7, and finally 10-8 in favor of the Mets, respectively, and gave the Mets their biggest comeback victory of the year.
