Mets Morning News: Mets remain in freefall and drop second straight to Braves, Pete Alonso exits with wrist injury

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

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

It was déjà vu all over again for the Mets in Atlanta. They jumped out to a 4-1 lead and once again they blew it when the starting pitching a bullpen fell apart. This time Max Scherzer, Brooks Raley, and Adam Ottavino were the culprits for the loss while Daniel Vogelbach continues to get playing time and continues to be unproductive. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and double play. To make matters worse Pete Alonso was hit on the wrist with a pitch and exited the game. Mediocre May has now fully given way to the June Swoon and there’s no end in sight.
