Errors doom Mets in Atlanta
ATLANTA (AP) — Three errors by New York fueled Atlanta’s comeback as the Braves scored four runs in the eighth inning and beat the Mets 5-3 for their fifth straight win.
Errors by reliever Jeurys Familia (1-3), center fielder Juan Lagares and third baseman Eric Campbell in the eighth helped the Braves rally from a 3-1 deficit.
Anthony Varvaro (3-1) pitched one scoreless inning to earn the victory. Craig Kimbrel recorded the final three outs for his 25th save.
The Braves announced late in the game that catcher Evan Gattis will be placed on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI revealed a bulging thoracic disk in his back.
Curtis Granderson had two hits, including a homer, for the Mets.
