Mets push back Syndergaard, start Gsellman vs Braves

"In short, It's a little thing right now but I definitely don't want it to turn into a big thing", he said. Jace Peterson (in the game because Brandon Phillips departed with a groin strain in the second inning) hit a grounder through the right side to score Inciarte and give the Braves their eighth run. The Mets have lost 10 of their last 11 games and at 8-13 dropped behind Atlanta into last place in the NL East, seven games behind division-leading Washington.

Perhaps it is time for the Mets to put less emphasis on the home run, and greater focus on base hits.

Wednesday a handful of errors - throwing errors by Gsellman and Jose Reyes and a fielding error by Yoenis Cespedes - and generally listless defense were the latest twists in a stretch of frustration for the Mets. NY starter Robert Gsellman was hit hard with six runs plated (five earned) on ten hits and three bases on balls through four innings pitched to absorb the loss.

Despite lasting through five full innings en route to a win, his second of the season, the 42-year-old right-hander initially appeared to injure himself back in the top half of the fourth inning. Matt Wisler, making his 2017 Atlanta Braves debut, pitched two scoreless innings (one hit, no walks, no strikeouts) to close out the game. "But we've seen better stuff". "There is going to be a time when they lose six out of eight, it's just the nature of the game", Collins said.

The Mets offense had one shot to make a game of it in the fourth inning, but a scuffling offense plated just one run to make it 5-1 despite loading the bases with no outs.

Matt Kemp and Nick Markakis had RBI singles earlier in the first.

Cespedes left last Thursday's loss to Philadelphia with a cramp in his left hamstring and returned to the lineup Wednesday. He's got a 6.23 ERA on the season now, and the Mets are going to have to hope he improves, whether they get Steven Matz or Seth Lugo back in the not-too-distant future or not. The Braves send veteran knuckleballer RA Dickey to the hill to face the Mets on Thursday.
