The Bullets fell to the Braves 6-4 on Wednesday night at SunTrust Park. >> Boxing Score
Six takeoffs from Wednesday's game …
1) Stephen Matz was amazing for Wednesday night's goals. He ran into some problems in the second inning, allowing a double RBI to Ender Inciarte but beyond that inning, he did an easy job on the Braves squad. The left made only two hits, scoring five. His night came to an end after six submissions and 79 fifths, the dubious decision of Mickey Calloway to put things back in the pen. Matz also helped himself with two hits of his own.
2) Dallas Koeschel kept the Mets' hits in balance for six innings. He didn't have the upper hand, but the combined speed was good enough to keep the Mets with just five hits over six innings. He hit seven and started just two.
3) In the sixth inning, the Meters picked up their first two runners, with JD Davis single and Pete Alonso being hit by a pitch. But Wilson Ramos is based on a 1
4) In seventh place the sweeps finally smashed the scoreboard. Mats split with two outs to start the rally, followed by a brutal shock ball by Amed Rosario for a brief stoppage, which eventually gave the Mets a second and a third with two outs. In a huge spot, Davis delivered a slammed single to center, scoring two and giving the Mets the lead.
5) With the lead in seventh place, Callaway pulled Matz in favor of Seth Lugo . The right hand was immediately stuck, loading the bases with no exits. Inciarte single finally to end the game. Tylers Flowers added another run on the ground ball to the right that pulled Alonso away from the bag, leaving Ruben Tejada out of play. The Braves went on to score five runs in that inning, all loaded to Lugo in just one third of the inning.
6) The Metes added two runs in the ninth and then loaded the bases for Ramos, who went down the swing. With two at a distance, Michael Conforto came down, swinging to finish the game.
