Depleted Mets survive in Atlanta, Voit hits first homer of the season
The New York Mets suffered two more injuries last night in Atlanta but still came away with a 3-1 victory against the Braves. They lost Taijuan Walker in the third inning with side tightness, and Kevin Pillar in the seventh after he was hit in the nose with a pitch. Sean Reid-Foley gave them three key innings of relief to aid the bullpen and help keep the Braves offense at bay. The Yankees arrived in Arlington to take on the Rangers. After Gerrit Cole broke the MLB record for consecutive strikeouts without a walk, he'd allow a pair of home runs and five earned runs in five innings. The Yankees offense couldn't catch up aside from a late Luke Voit home run, and the Bronx Bombers were defeated for the second night in a row.
