Braves Vs. Mets Final Score: Four-Run Mets Ninth Results In 8-7 Win Over Braves

A four-run ninth resulted in a walkoff win for the Mets over the Braves, stealing the game by a 8-7 score.

The Braves batted around in the fourth for a total of seven runs. Alex Gonzalez picked up two hits in the inning: a double to lead off and a two-run single to cap the scoring. Dan Uggla went 2-4 with a RBI single. Jason Heyward picked up a RBI on a double. Martin Prado, David Ross and Ed Lucas each recorded one RBI.

Matt Young received a plate appearance and reached on a single. Joe Mather went 1-4 with a single and strikeout. Lucas went 0-3 with a RBI, walk, and strikeout, the RBI coming thanks to an error by David Wright on a grounder. Wilkin Ramirez received a plate appearance and grounded into a bases loaded force out at home.

Kenshin Kawakami allowed three runs - one earned - on three hits in three innings, walking one and striking out three. After a perfect first, he gave up his first baserunner in the second on a walk by Jason Bay, who reached second on a wild pitch before being stranded.

Kawakami allowed a leadoff double to Josh Thole in the third, who reached third on a groundout and scored on a single by Jose Reyes. An error by Gonzalez prevented a double play, and after Wright struck out, Lucas Duda was hit by a pitch and Bay doubled home two. Kawakami had his usual outing of good at bats and bad at bats.

Cristhian Martinez allowed one run on three hits in two innings, not walking any and striking out three. He pitched a perfect fourth, including a strikeout, but he ran into singles trouble in the fifth. Reyes singled to lead off the inning, but Martinez got two straight strikeouts of Angel Pagan and Wright. Duda and Bay followed with back-to-back singles to score Reyes.

Scott Proctor walked two but pitched a scoreless sixth. Juan Abreu gave up a leadoff single to Wright in the seventh, but he erased it with a double play. Jairo Asencio pitched a perfect eighth, including a strikeout of Thole. Brett Oberholtzer was knocked around for four runs in the ninth on four singles and two walks. Not much to say except he had zero location and stuff today.

Martinez may not have won anybody over today, but Proctor wasn't much better in his inning. I don't think anything changed based on their outings.
