The Atlanta Braves ended a four-game set in New York with a loss to the NL-East leading Mets 7-3 on Wednesday night at Citi Field, which resulted in an even 2-2 split in the series. Atlanta is now tied with Philadelphia for the third place in the division, five games behind New York.
It was a tough evening on the mound for Braves starting pitcher Kyle Wright in his return to the majors. He was charged with the loss after giving up five runs and four hits, walking three, and striking out one in just two innings.
Highlights of the night included a two-run homer from Ender Inciarte that got the Braves on the board in the top of the fifth, his second home run of the ’21 season.
Corey Oswalt was credited with the win in relief and Edwin Diaz picked up the save for New York, whose offensive leader was Francisco Lindor with a total of three RBIs to include a two-run homer in the second.
The Braves will be Cincinnati this evening to open a four-game series against the Reds. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm at the Great American Ball Park. Listen on WLAQ 1410 AM and 96.9 FM; air time is 5:55 pm.
