The Mets lost a brutal game to the Braves.

The Mets continued their uninspiring play and lost to the Braves in a landslide of a game, 8-2, after Robert Gsellman was shelled. With Julio Teheran on the mound for the Braves, the game was pretty much over when Gsellman gave up five runs in the top of the first inning.

And things didn’t really change from there. The Mets loaded the bases with nobody out in the fourth but only scored one run on a Neil Walker sacrifice fly. Fernando Salas gave up a couple runs in the seventh, which might not have mattered, as the Mets scored just once more before the game ended.

Full recap to follow.
