Mets' Syndergaard misses start because of bicep discomfort

"I didn't think his stuff was as crisp as we've seen it". Jace Peterson (in the game because Brandon Phillips departed with a groin strain in the second inning) hit a grounder through the right side to score Inciarte and give the Braves their eighth run.

The young right-hander had his worst start of the year, coughing up five runs in the first inning and never giving the Mets a chance in an 8-2 loss to Atlanta, their fifth straight defeat and ninth in 10 games.

Atlanta pushed across yet more runs in the seventh: Dansby Swanson reached on a groundball that only moved a few feet away from the plate (and was hit too weakly to be captured by Statcast, apparently), was bunted to second, and scored on a deep drive from Ender Inciarte that ended up being a double but might have been a homer at SunTrust Park. Atlanta ended a six-game skid behind 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball from Teheran (2-1). NY starter Robert Gsellman was hit hard with six runs plated (five earned) on ten hits and three bases on balls through four innings pitched to absorb the loss. Matt Wisler, making his 2017 Atlanta Braves debut, pitched two scoreless innings (one hit, no walks, no strikeouts) to close out the game. Robert Gsellman gave up five runs in the first inning alone. "Maybe just write this one off to a bad night". Gsellman said Collins told him Tuesday night that he'd start this game.




Juan Lagares ran for Cespedes, scoring two batters later on Neil Walker's double to left field. Flowers chased Gsellman with an RBI single in the fifth. INSULT, BUT LESS INJURY Cespedes had been out since getting a cramp in his left hamstring last Thursday, and d'Arnaud caught for the first time since bruising his right wrist a week ago.

Sure, the Mets' veterans will likely play better once the weather heats up and Citi Field will play a little smaller once the temperature rises, but the Mets' biggest hope to dig themselves out of this is their pitching. The Braves send veteran knuckleballer RA Dickey to the hill to face the Mets on Thursday.
