Braves Sweep Mets With 3-1 Win

Despite a solid performance from Johan Santana, the Mets lost 3-1 to the Braves in Atlanta last night.

John Smoltz pitched very well, giving up only two hits and two walks in five innings. Santana was almost as good, only giving up one run over seven innings. The Mets offense was stifled by Braves pitching with Santana having the Mets only extra base hit, a double. The Mets had only five hits in the game.

Aaron Heilman was the goat of this game, walking Chipper Jones in the eighth and allowing a two-run homer to Mark Teixeira.

The Mets made a comeback attempt in the ninth inning but it was too little too late. Teixeira snagged a shot by Brian Schneider down the first base line to end the game. See the box score here.

Yesterday the Mets pitching let them down and today the offense couldn’t generate anything against the Braves pitching. The Mets have the day off tomorrow and return to New York for the home opener on Tuesday at Shea Stadium.
