The Atlanta Braves saw their eight-game winning streak come to an end with a 9-7 loss to Max Scherzer and the New York Mets Wednesday at Truist Park. Atlanta fell behind 4-0 early before cutting the deficit to 6-5 with a four-run seventh that featured a three-run home run by Robbie Grossman. However, the Mets would tack on three more runs in the ninth to put the game out of reach.
