Final score: Braves 1, Mets 0—How not to run the bases (Amazin’ Avenue)


Jerad Eickhoff threw four scoreless innings in his Mets debut in the second game of the team’s doubleheader this evening, but the Mets made a bunch of baserunning blunders that sunk the team’s chances to score multiple times early. And despite loading the bases with one out in the bottom of the seventh, the Mets still failed to scored as they lost the game.

The lone run of the game scored when Ronald Acuña Jr. hit a solo home run to center field, a rocket that didn’t get high off the ground but got over the wall in a hurry, off Miguel Castro. Aside from that, the Mets’ bullpen didn’t allow much of anything. Unfortunately, even one run allowed was too much.

Full recap to follow.
