Mets End 7-Game Losing Streak by Beating the Braves 8-5

Things have been going very poorly for the Mets as they lost 7 games in a row.  In many of those games, their bullpen was not able to hold leads.  In last night's game which was the final weekend game celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1969 World Series-winning team, the Amazins finally pulled through.

Noah Syndergaard started the game after returning from a short stay on the Injury List.  He was not as sharp as usual as he allowed 3 runs and 7 hits in 5 2/3 innings.  Reliever Chris Flexen was not effective as he allowed 2 runs giving the Braves a 5-3 lead.  The Mets rallied in th3 8th inning to score 5 runs to take an 8-5 lead.  Beleaguered reliever Edwin Diaz pitched a clean 9th inning to get the save. 

Now it is 2 games against the Yankees who killed the Red Sox in London.
