Mets over Braves on Sunday night
Freddie Freeman had five RBIs in the first two innings and the Braves battered Santana in his return from the disabled list, routing the sluggish New York Mets 9-3 on Saturday night.
Matt Harvey, of Groton, walked five in the first three innings and allowed a two-run homer to Jason Heyward, and the New York Mets managed just three hits in a 4-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
Jason Heyward singled to cap a three-run rally and the Braves took advantage after the umpires reversed a call, beating the New York Mets 8-7 Saturday for their sixth straight win.
Chris Young, who had not walked a batter in two straight starts, appeared to be finding his form in his return to the Mets’ rotation. The 6-foot-10 right-hander took a step back against the Atlanta Braves, when his poor start set the pace for an ugly night for New York’s staff.
