Final score: Mets 3, Braves 0—Doubleheader sweep!

The Mets beat the Braves for the second time today.

MLB: Game Two-Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets completed a doubleheader sweep of the rival Braves, winning the nightcap by a 3-0 score. Carlos Carrasco was outstanding, as he threw eight scoreless innings with five strikeouts and two walks, working around the six hits he allowed with ease.

Pete Alonso hit a solo home run to account for one of the Mets’ runs, while Dominic Smith drove in the other two with a first-inning double that plated Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil.

With the win, the Mets guaranteed that they will at least split their four-game series with the Braves, assuming the finale is played tomorrow despite a questionable forecast.
