1authorrob3 - New York Mets Continue To Struggle, Drop Another One To BravesThere’s only one good piece of news surrounding the New York Mets. It’s that their competitors, the Washington Nationals, completely stink.

Bryce Harper and the Nats lost again tonight, this time by a final of 4-3 to Buck Showalter’s Baltimore Orioles. This means the Mets embarrassing 6-3 loss to the hapless Atlanta Braves tonight means virtually nothing in the standings.

It was a three-run home run by Freddie Freeman in the ninth-inning off closer Jeurys Familia that broke a 3-3 tie and put Atlanta up for good. Freeman only received two at-bats in the game due to an apparent injury.

Still, the Mets magic number has now dwindled down to just five-games.

But there’s a great concern at the moment. For a team who’s been so great at home in 2015, they didn’t just lose their first home-stand of the season, they were pathetic (3-9).

The lineup’s been inconsistent, bullpen horrible, starting staff mediocre, and Matt Harvey head-scratching. For now Terry Collins and company will look to right the ship with a four-game set in Cincinnati against the Reds starting tomorrow night.
