MLB ROUNDUP: Mets drop SIXTH straight after blowing ninth-inning lead to Braves
The Mets led 10-7 in the eighth inning and still had a one-run advantage in the ninth but were unable to put away the Braves as they fell 13-10 in 10 innings.
New York got off to a tough start as Justin Verlander allowed three runs in the first inning, but the visitors responded in the top of the second with five runs as Brandon Nimmo hit a grand slam.
From there, the Mets mostly led the rest of the way and added to their tally with two home runs from Francisco Alvarez.
However, after Drew Smith allowed a two-run homer to Travis D'Arnaud in the bottom of the eighth and David Robertson was taken the distance by Orlando Arcia in the ninth, Ozzie Albies finished things off in the 10th inning with a three-run shot.
