Well, they say turnaround is fair play. The Mets won in stunning fashion in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday, and on Monday night (or Tuesday morning depending on where you are), the Braves beat the Mets in the bottom of the ninth, spoiling a gem by Dillon Gee.
The game started at almost 11 pm after a nearly four-hour rain delay, but once it got going it moved fast, lasting less than two and a half hours.
It was scoreless until the seventh when John Buck singled, moved to second on a ground out, then scored when Gee singled to left to give the Mets a 1-0 lead.
Gee walked to the mound in the ninth trying for his first career shutout. He got the first out but then Justin Upton singled. Freddie Freeman then hit a home run to right to win the game for the Braves, 2-1.
Dillon Gee was masterful up until then, allowing just three hits with six strikeouts and one walk through the first eight innings. But then came that damn ninth inning.
Lucas Duda had a career game. He was four-for-four while playing his first game at first base this season. Looks like this first base thing agrees with him.
Mets lose a heartbreaker, 2-1.
