Final Score: Mets 4 Braves 3

photoThe Least You Should Know:

David Wright his two solo home runs, Andrew Brown hit another, and Josh Satin had a pinch-hit RBI double, as the Mets completed taking three of five games from the Braves to win their first series in Atlanta since 2011.

Jon Niese left the game in the fourth inning with what the team again described as “left shoulder discomfort.” However, David Ardsma, LaTroy Hawkins, Brandon Lyon, Josh Edgin and Bobby Parnell stepped in to not allow a run.

Cut the game ball in to five pieces and give it tonight’s representatives from the bullpen, especially Edgin, who did a terrific job battling against Jayson Heyward with two runners on and two outs in the eighth inning, despite starting the at bat with a 3-0 count…

Hat’s off to Omar Quintanilla, who did a nice job fighting through a leadoff at bat in the seventh inning with the game tied. He was down 0-2 in the count, kept himself alive to drive a ball down the third base line for a hit. He then scored on an opposite-field double by Satin, who was clearly trying to drive the ball the other way…

The Front Office really likes Brown, he was killing the ball in Triple-A, but has struggled with the Mets. It would be a huge help if he could start clicking here….

Eric Young Jr. made a fantastic catch in the fourth inning, with runners on, driving forward to snag a ball that would certainly have rolled to the wall and let a run score had he not pulled it in…

Daniel Murphy made a terrific play, going to deep to his right, snagging a ground ball then making a jumping throw, fighting his momentum, to keep the bases empty to start the ninth inning. He looks so much better at second base than I ever thought he could be. I’m glad he’s back there and no longer playing first, as he did last week. By the way, Lucas Duda looks pretty comfortable  not great, but comfortable, at first…
