McCann tallies four hits, Mets hit five homers in blowout win
The New York Mets finally had the offensive explosion they have been searching for in all of this month, toppling over the division rival Braves in a 13-2 rout. The catalyst might have been the return of Taijuan Walker from injury, as he threw five scoreless with eight strikeouts in his first night back. Leading the charge was James McCann, who tallied his third 4-hit game of his career in the victory, including a home run, double and two RBIs. The Mets also got home runs from Jonathan Villar, Brandon Drury, Billy McKinney, and most importantly, their struggling superstar Francisco Lindor. The Mets were rained out last night and are likely to be rained out again tonight with the impending forecast, so a probable timetable for Jacob deGrom's next start is still in the air.
