Can the Mets extend their winning streak to three games with a road win over the Atlanta Braves Wednesday night?
The Mets are back on the right track after finding themselves on the losing end of a sweep this past weekend. Following three straight losses to the Rays, the Amazins continued their nine-game road trip with wins over the Braves on Monday and Tuesday.
Catcher Tomas Nido proved heroic in Tuesday’s victory, smashing a two-out solo home run to take a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth inning. Edwin Diaz then came on to record his seventh save of the season.
Could the Mets extend their current two-game winning streak, further stretch their lead atop the National League East Division, and ultimately sweep Atlanta with a win Wednesday night?
