"Standing ovation" doesn't seem to be quite the right term for what Chipper Jones received after drawing a four-pitch walk in a pinch-hit opportunity at Citi Field on Sunday. But let's just go with it because "dedicated applause in a raised position from some, though not all, of the half-interested and half-full crowd of Mets fans who weren't busy checking their phones for fantasy football scores or still waiting in line for Shake Shack" is just a bit too wordy.
Though the Mets rolled out a nice weekend for their anti-hero from Atlanta, Jones and the Braves didn't show much thanks as the guests of honor. A 3-2 victory on Sunday gave Atlanta a series sweep and a 10-5 edge in the season series with three games at Turner Field to go.
