Awful. Awful, awful, awful. At least they weren’t shut out for eight innings by John Maine, though they only got one run off of him before he left with an injury. The Braves instead got shut down by the Mets bullpen. Meanwhile, the defense was simply terrible, though somehow all five runs were scored “earned”. I really don’t understand that rule.
The only guy who did anything was Infante, who started at short, batting eighth, and 3-4 and scored both runs. The rest of the team had four hits combined, or eight fewer hits than strikeouts. Even Infante got caught up in the error parade, though he didn’t match Chipper’s two. McLouth didn’t commit any errors, but he did strike out four times.
