The New York Mets couldn’t handle the Atlanta Braves offense in yesterday’s game and got completely stomped by them in a 13-1 loss at Truist Park. Ronald Acuña Jr. tallied 3 RBI doubles and William Contreras teamed with Eddie Rosario to hit back-to-back. But the most impressive performance was fashioned by Spencer Strider, who allowed a single run over 5 innings, 3 of which were completed after a 55-minute rain delay.
The Braves are now running on a 7-game winning streak after yesterday’s win and their recent sweep over the Miami Marlins. The Braves entered Monday, second in the National League East race, 5 games behind the Mets for the top spot in the division. They own the top wild-card spot in the National League and stand 7.5 games clear of the Brewers to remain on the right side of the playoff cut line.
Charlie Morton will try to keep things going for the Atlanta Braves, making his 23rd start of the season today. He is carrying a 5-5 record with a 4.26 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 122.2 innings pitched while striking out 141. In his last outing, the 38-year-old righty threw 6 innings, allowing 5 runs on 6 hits with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts in a game the Braves went on to win 9-7 in 11 innings against the Boston Red Sox.
New York replies back with Taijuan Walker, who is making his 21st start in 2022. He is holding a good-looking 10-3 record with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 110 innings pitched while striking out 85. In his last start, Walker picked up a win, which came Wednesday at home against the Cincinnati Reds. He threw 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts in a game the Mets won 10-2.
