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

Meet the Mets

The Mets emphatically ended a seven-game Truist Park losing streak with a resounding 10-4 victory over the Braves last night. New York got homers from the red-hot D.J. Stewart (solo), Rafael Ortega (two-run), and Francisco Lindor (three-run). The Mets survived a shaky start from David Peterson, who allowed four runs in 4 23 innings, and jumped ahead for good with a four-run fifth, while their three-run sixth sealed the victory.
