Far from being his customary dominant self, Noah Syndergaard was rather awful in a game the Mets lost to the Braves by a score of 7-3. Syndergaard allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks and didn’t make it out of the fourth inning as the Braves jumped out to a 5-0 lead.
On the bright side, Curtis Granderson and James Loney each went 3-for-4 and the Mets managed to give Jeurys Familia and Addison Reed the whole night off. Josh Edgin did allow a couple of runs in relief, but even Rafael Montero managed to pitch a scoreless ninth inning out of the bullpen.
The Mets’ runs came on a two-run homer by T.J. Rivera in the fourth inning and a ninth-inning RBI double by Loney in garbage time.
Robert Gsellman and Julio Teheran square off on Tuesday night at 7:10PM as the Mets look to rebound from this dreadful affair.
