Five Takeaways from Sunday’s game
1) Rick Porcello pitched a solid seven inning for the Mets, but obviously didn’t get enough run support. His only blemish was a solo homer he gave up to Ronald Acuna in the top of the sixth inning. Porcello totaled 10 strikeouts with two walks and three hits allowed. Definitely what Porcello wanted to do on the mound in this one.
2) On the other side of the mound, Kyle Wright, who came into the game with an ERA over 7.00, pitched a gem. He allowed a single hit over 6.1 innings of work with six strikeouts and one walk.
3 )Travis d’Arnaud added much-need insurance for the Braves in the top of the eighth with a two-run homer off Jeurys Familia to make it 3-0. But the Braves blew things open in the top of the ninth when Chasen Shreve allowed four runs (three earned) on two hits and two walks.
5) It was a big off day for Michael Conforto with an 0-for-4 day with three strikeouts at the dish.
