Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the top of the 7th inning when the Braves hit back to back home runs of R.A. Dickey. The Braves went up 4-2 at the time and that’s how it ended.
Game Ball: Angel Pagan: 2-5.
R.A. Dickey: 6.2 IP | 9 H | 3 ER | 2 SO. Dickey was also 2-2 at the plate tonight.
Josh Thole continues to impress at the plate: 1-3 | 1 BB
With Jose Reyes still somewhat injured the Mets switched up the top of the order batting Angel Pagan leadoff and Jose Reyes second.
Before the game the Mets recalled Nick Evans from Binghamton. Option RHP Ryota Igarashi to St. Lucie. via Mets Twitter.
