Simulated Recap: Mets Winning Streak Snapped
The Mets returned to Citi Field with a nine game winning streak, and they were wearing their Friday black jerseys. However, they would not be winners.
Ozzie Albies hit a two run homer off of Steven Matz in the fifth to give the Braves a 3-1 lead. The Mets almost took the lead in the bottom half, but Amed Rosario‘s fly ball was caught safely inches from the wall.
In the seventh, Jeff McNeil hit yet another homer this season to pull the Mets to within 3-2. While the Mets had two on in the eighth, they couldn’t push that tying run across, and they eventually lost by that 3-2 score.
