Chris Young was good but Mike Minor and the Braves were better, shutting out the Mets to the tune of 2-0.
The Bad Stuff:
- The Mets managed only 5 hits, didn't walk once, and went 0-5 with the few runners they had in scoring position. Any questions?
- Chris Young was solid in his final start of the season, picking up a tough loss but a quality start with 6 innings, 7 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts.
Look, if you had to choose between winning on Chipper Jones Night and on any old Saturday night, you'd choose the former. I'm as cool as I'll ever be with a loss.
The only thing this does is guarantee the Mets can't finish better than they did last season. All they have to do is win the last four games and we'll be 77-85 again. Sure, it's not the best of records, but at least we'll know we haven't lost any ground.
