There was nothing going for the Braves on Tuesday as the Mets took both games of the doubleheader. A 3-run fifth wasn’t enough for the Braves to pass the Mets, who secured game one of the DH 5-4. The Braves collected 7 hits in game two but were unable to produce a run and walked away with a 3-0 loss.

Ian Anderson is on the bump this afternoon as the Braves aim to end the series in a tie. First pitch is set for 1:10pm ET.
