The Mets dropped out of first place in the National League East with another loss in Atlanta, their fourth straight going back to their pair of road games in Toronto. Noah Syndergaard labored through four innings, the Mets came back from down a couple runs to tie the game, and they ultimately lost.

Wilmer Flores was having a rough time in the field lately, so he didn't start yesterday. He did get into the game as a shortstop, though.

Jeurys Familia tweaked his groin in Friday night's loss, but the Mets are confident that he'll be back soon.

Do the Mets lose anything by not bunting? Probably not most of the time.

Terry Collins has fond memories of his father, who passed away earlier this year.

Around the NL East

The Nationals won as Max Scherzer threw a no-hitter. He nearly threw a perfect game but hit Jose Tabata with a pitch with two outs in the ninth.

The Mets haven't been great lately, but at least they aren't the Phillies, a team that continues to be absolutely terrible at baseball.

The Marlins beat the Reds yesterday.

Around MLB

Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran each had a big day for the Yankees.
