The Atlanta Braves will aim to take a two-game split in their head-to-head meeting with the New York Mets on Sunday. After losing the first two games in the series, the Braves bounced back with a monstrous hitting night for an 11-5 victory on Saturday. New York’s Jacob deGrom is expected to occupy the mind opposite of Atlanta’ s Julio Teheran in Game 4.

Mets get buried early

There aren’t many times a team is going to bounce back from giving up eight runs in the first two innings. The Mets didn’t stink on offense in Saturday’s rout. They simply ran into a buzz saw camouflaged as the same Braves team they played in the previous two meetings.
Lefty Jason Vargas wasn’t even on the mound for a full inning before everything started to fall apart. In mere minutes of pitching, he looked up to see four runs already on the scoreboard. It took a third walk and a fourth run scored before he was finally pulled from the mound and replaced with right-handed pitcher Corey Oswalt, who didn’t look any better.
He managed to get the Mets out of the first inning mess before creating one of his own in the second inning—four walks and five earned runs, including one homer. On offense, the Mets did manage to pull the game within four points after trailing by seven. Catcher Travis d’Arnaud was the standout with two runs scored in four at-bats in the 11-7 loss.
 

Braves finally show fire on offense

The Braves got tired of being the nail and started being the hammer on Saturday.
Thousands at SunTrust Park stood on their feet in celebration as the bats finally came alive. To their delight, it was at the expense of a Mets team that had won its last three consecutive games. Meanwhile, the Braves were reeling from back-to-back losses on their home field by a division rival. There was no chance they were going to let the Mets embarrass them by sweeping the series.
The leadoff batting was superb for the Braves with Ozzie Albies, Josh Donaldson and Freddie Freeman each netting two hits and earning two-plus runs in the game. Donaldson crossed home plate three times in the offensive explosion.
 
Some might look at the scoreboard and miss the brilliant pitching performance by Toussaint, who held the Mets to only one run over the span of six innings. His performance was especially important considering the Mets answered with four runs in the top of the second inning and attempted to mount a comeback.
It was the dominant offensive performance combined with Touki Touissant’s pitching that ultimately won the game for the Braves.
