The New York Mets dropped both games of a doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday. Game 1 was within reach for most of the game but the Mets fell short 6-5. In his major league debut, Chris Schwinden didn’t put his team in a position to win, allowing three runs right of the bat in the first inning. He went five innings and allowed five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four. Game 2 was on the bats. They were quiet all night as the Mets mustered only seven hits. The lone run was scored on a sacrifice fly in the first inning. Dreadful doubleheader, just dreadful.

Bay has been seeing more of the home run apple as of late.
