The Mets lose Marcus Stroman and the game.

The Mets lost more than just a game to the Braves tonight, 3-0 at Citi Field. In the second inning, Marcus Stroman was pulled from the game with an apparently hip injury. While there isn’t information on just how hurt Stroman is yet, if Stroman is to miss any significant time due to this injury, the Mets will have an even tougher go than they’ve already had on the injury front.

The bullpen was taxed considerably tonight, who put together eight and a third innings of work. Yennsy Diaz gave up a three-run home run to Dansby Swanson in the third, but Drew Smith, Aaron Loup, and Trevor May all tossed scoreless appearances.

For the second time in three games, the Mets were shut out by the Braves, wasting an opportunity in the fifth inning when, after a walk to Luis Guillorme, pinch hitter Jerad Eickoff broke up Charlie Morton’s no hitter with an infield single. The only other hit came in the ninth, a two-out double from James McCann.

Full recap to follow.
