Nimmo 2 HRs, Leading Megill, Mets Over Braves – CBS New York
Atlanta (AFP) Brandon Nemo hit two lanes solo, Taylor Miguel allowed one hit in five goalless rounds and New York Mets multiply the Atlanta Braves 4-3 Friday night, pick up the NL East Champions’ six-game winning streak.
One night after winning their fourth straight division title, the Braves played just three regulars: second baseman Ozzy Albis, left baseman Eddie Rosario and Austin Riley, who went from third base to first base.
The Mets scored in the fourth inning when Francisco Lindor led with a walk and Pete Alonso, who scored 3 for 4, doubled his goal into the net to make the score 1-0. Alonso finished third in an Orlando Archia foul on the board. He was initially called, but a video review showed that he beat the Ehire Adrianza tag.
New York recorded again in the inning on James McCann’s RBI single. Brave rookie Huascar Ynoa (4-6) hit Megill to hook the loaded bases.
Megill (4-6) didn’t allow the first hit until the Albies picked the spot with one in fourth. Albiz captured second place but was stranded by Riley’s strike and Rosario’s disruption.
Megill hopes to continue his last start to the season until 2022, when he is a candidate to remain in the rotation.
“Very important,” he said. “Being able to get out there and throw well and that high that you threw well and had success going off-season knowing you finished strong. Keep that momentum going through the holiday season and prepare for the next time.”
Homer Nemo VII put New York 3-0 up for fifth from Yonwa. Eighth Nemo, who knocked out Spencer Strider in seventh, made it 4-1. They both landed in the right seats.
“Tonight we saw him really prepare early and land in a strong position and be able to stretch the bat,” said Mets manager Luis Rojas. “He is a strong human being, and if he puts himself in a position to take the barrel out of there, things like this can happen. There is strength in him.”
Rosario hit his 14th score in the seventh game of Heath Hembrey to cut the Mets lead 4-2. Trevor May’s Adrianza arrived eighth, and the Braves had two sprinters in the scoring position when he finished eighth on the Orlando Archia lineup.
Edwin Diaz scored 32 saves on 38 chances with his ninth action.
The Mets, who have confirmed their fourth losing record in five years, are 30-49 on the road.
Miguel, who walked one and hit six, lost his last two games and earned a 12.86 ERA during that stretch. He has given up 12 homers in his previous six starts.
Jeurys Familia ditched her second Atlanta single, Adrianza’s song at Six. Adrianza scored a double by Alpes, reducing the difference to 3-1.
Ynoa, who has not won since May 9, allowed three runs, six two-strokes and six strokes in five runs. He is 0-2 with a 6.52 ERA in six games this month.
It’s not a finished product yet,” said Braves Principal Brian Snitker. “He’s still learning, but overall I thought his stuff was fine tonight.”
Atlanta 1B Freddie Freeman received treatment on his right elbow, which he injured at 100mph the night before. Freeman was among the starters on the night off.
The Mets of Kevin Pillar faced Jacob Webb for the first time since Webb hit him in the face with a pitch on May 17, going out with the runners on the first and third on the sixth.
New York’s 2B Javier Báez streak, the 23rd best of his football career, ended when he went 0 for 4. He hit .386 with 18 runs, four pairs, four hurdles, 13 RBIs, 10 walks and five stolen bases during the streak.
