The Mets' offense couldn't figure out Derrick Lowe and DJ Carrasco only lasted into the 4th as Atlanta took Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader, 4-2.
The offense looked even worse against Jair Jurrjens in Game 2 and Mike Pelfrey was ineffective on the mound in five innings, giving the Braves a 4-0 win.
The Bad Stuff:
(see Game 1, Innings 1-9; repeat step for Game 2)
The Good Stuff:
New York's 2nd doubleheader in 3 days looked just as bad, if not worse, than the 1st. The offense can't do anything, pitching is pathetic, energy is low. The Amazin's' 7th straight loss knocks them down to the bottom of the entire National League and on even (something resembling) footing with Seattle for worst record in all of baseball. Quite simply, this team needs a win. Fast.
