The Mets may have lost their two best players to injury today, and they lost again too.

The Mets lost yet again to the lowly Braves, their sixth-straight loss and tenth in their last 11 games. We learned before the game that Noah Syndergaard was scratched due to biceps tendinitis and is going for an MRI, but somehow things only got worse after that.

Matt Harvey got the start in place of Syndergaard and looked bad. He pitched only 4.1 innings and gave up six runs and walked five. He recorded only one strikeout.

The biggest blow of the game for the Mets, though, was when Yoenis Cespedes came out of the game in the fourth inning after re-injuring his hamstring while legging out a double. He is likely headed to the disabled list. Everything is going wrong for the Mets right now.

Full recap to follow.
