The Atlanta Braves ended the 2019 regular season with a loss at the hands of the New York Mets 7-6 in 11 innings on Sunday in the finale of a three-game set at Citi Field in New York, which allowed the Mets to complete a sweep of weekend series among rivals in the National League East.
Adeiny Hechavarria tied the game at 4-4 on a solo home run top of the ninth inning. He broke that tie with another solo shot in the top of the 11th that was immediately followed by a solo home run from Adam Duvall. Unfortunately for the Braves, the Mets came charging back in the bottom of that inning and secured the win with a three-run homer off Grant Dayton by Dominic Smith.
