The Least You Should Know:
Chris Young started for the Mets and was solid for six innings, allowing two runs and seven hits in six innings.
Elvin Ramirez and Ramon Ramirez each contributed a scoreless inning of relief.
David Wright knocked his 41st double of the season in the seventh inning.
Ruben Tejada went 0-for-4 to snap his ten-game hitting streak.
The Mets have now matched their loss total from 2011 with four games to go.
Michael Baron, MetsBlog.com:Chris Young was outstanding tonight. He commanded the top of the strike zone so well and had an outstanding slider going right from the beginning. It was a rebuilding season for Young and can definitely be considered a success for him, despite not having much on his line to show for it.
The Mets offense got nothing going against Mike Minor tonight. He dazzled the Mets with a good change-up and breaking pitch and kept his fastball on the corners. He gave the Braves enough length to get them into the strength of their bullpen, and it was lights out at that point. The light has definitely come on for this kid, and he looks like he’s going to be a big headache in the National League East for the foreseeable future.
