[live tv***] Atlanta Braves - New York Mets live free 11 August 2023
After the Braves and Mets traded zeroes in the first inning, the scoring got underway in the second inning. Ozzie Albies as a left-handed batter has been an absolute terror for opposing pitchers at the plate and tonight was Carlos Carrasco's turn to experience the treatment. Albies got a fastball that he liked and skied it clear over the fence in center field to put the Braves ahead early in this one.
Jeff McNeil followed that up with a walk and then Pete Alonso also got a slider that he liked and smacked it over the fence for New York's second two-run homer of this frame. Between Mets Bench Coach Eric Chavez getting ejected for apparently saying the magic words to the home plate umpire and Pete Alonso yelling at Elder to throw another slider as he was celebrating in the visitors’ dugout, the Mets were riding an emotional high in that frame and it paid off for them at that point in the contest. As it turned out, this moment of hubris was as good as it got for New York tonight. The Mets stayed on top until the sixth inning, which is when the rest of Atlanta's offense finally came alive against Carrasco in this one.
