At a certain level, this makes me angry. I know that the Mets don’t care, but why couldn’t we do something like this when it mattered? The Braves took over the game in the sixth, scoring six runs in the inning to take a 7-0 lead and knock Pedro out of the game. McCann and Francoeur hit back-to-back homers. In the sixth, they scored five more runs on homers by Chipper, Francoeur, and Thorman. McCann also had two doubles to finish 3-4 with three RBI and two runs scored. Francoeur was 2-4 with three runs and three RBI. Langerhans was 2-2 with two walks.
Hudson allowed one run in six innings of work. He also threw 98 pitches, which seems like a lot for six innings. He walked three and struck out only two, plus the Mets weren’t actually trying. Moylan pitched the seventh unscathed, Franklin allowed two hits in the eighth but managed to not allow any runs, and Thomson, activated a couple days ago, pitched the ninth for his very first Atlanta Save.
