Ronald Acuña Jr. had a big day but it wasn’t quite enough for the Atlanta Braves who fell 6-3 to the New York Mets in Thursday’s series opener. Kevin Gausman wasn’t quite as sharp as in his debut allowing four hits and four runs over 5 2/3 innings. Here is what Brian Snitker and company had to say after the loss.
