Series Recap: Mets Win Final Game Against Braves to Avoid Sweep

By Unknown author

The Mets got off to a rough start versus the Braves, dropping both games of the double-header yesterday, and only scoring two runs on the day. However, with the help of a stellar Dillon Gee outing, the Mets took care of the Braves today, winning 3-2.


  • Jose Reyes posted two walks and stole two bases in the series.
  • D.J. Carrasco started his first game in over two years, and it was forgettable–3.6 innings, four hits, three earned runs, three walks, and two strikeouts.
  • Pedro Beato pitched two scoreless innings in the second game, while striking out three batters. Beato has yet to give up a run in 2011 in nine frames.
  • Mike Pelfrey hurled five mediocre innings in Game 2, surrendering four earned-runs on an astounding eleven hits, one walk, and three strikeouts. Pelf is still winless in four contests this year.
  • Daniel Murphy lead-off with a key double in the sixth inning of Game 2, only to get caught stealing third base (there were no outs, and the Mets were down by four runs).
  • Dillon Gee looked sharp in 5.6 innings, giving up just five hits, one earned-run, two walks, and struck-out four batters. Gee recorded the Mets first win since April 9th.
  • Josh Thole looked at home in the two-hole, going 2-4 with two RBI, and one run scored.
