Mets Morning News: Rain o’er Me

Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Mets—facing a weekend filled with poor weather—played in the rain last night to begin their series against the Atlanta Braves. David Peterson started and held the Braves off the board for four innings before surrendering four runs in the fifth—including a three-run home run given up to Matt Olson. The offense, meanwhile, couldn’t get much of anything going against Max Fried, and after five innings were concluded the umpires called for the tarp to be placed on the field and eventually called the game, giving the Mets a five-inning 4-0 loss.
