Meet the Mets

The Braves beat the Mets 7-6. Making a start on his birthday, Steven Matz left the game early due to injury and left the game in the hands of the bullpen. Despite a two homer game from Asdrubal Cabrera, the Mets were not able to hold on for the win as Jacob Rhame and Gerson Bautista struggled, ending with Bautista surrendering the walk off homer.
