    Megill was called upon for the seventh inning of a game the Mets trailed by two, and the righty proceeded to allow two runs in the Mets’ series-opening, 5-2 loss to the Braves at Truist Park on Friday night. The Braves moved into a first-place tie with the Mets with five games left (two more head to head) in part because Megill — in his fifth outing since returning from a shoulder injury and transitioning to a reliever — continued to struggle.

    Austin Riley and Matt Olson hit back-to-back homers off Jacob deGrom in the second inning Friday night for the Atlanta Braves, who moved into a tie for first place with the visiting New York Mets by earning a 5-2 win in the opener of a pivotal three-game series. The National League East co-leaders are 98-59. The Mets need one win over the next two days to clinch the season series and the tiebreaker should the teams finish with the same record.
