Kyle Wright allowed a career-high four home runs as the Atlanta Braves dropped their series opener in New York to the Mets 6-4. Atlanta dug themselves an early 5-0 hole and were unable to recover although they did make it interesting late. Michael Harris had two hits and drove in a pair of runs while Ronald Acuña Jr. homered for the first time in nearly a month. Edwin Diaz recorded a six-out save to nail down the victory for New York.
Home Runs: Tyler Naquin 2 (9), Alonso (29), Vogelbach (14), Acuña (9)
