Braves 2 Mets 1 in 14 innings

We headed over to Citi Field last night as this game was part of our package, but we didn't think it would be a very late night.  The Mets tied a major league record with their 8 pitchers striking out 26 Braves, but they still lost the game.  Jacob deGrom became the first pitcher to homer and strike out 13 batters in the same game twice in one season.  His home run turned out to be the only run scored by the Mets in this 14 inning marathon.

The Mets couldn't hit in the clutch as they left the bases loaded in the 10th inning and runners on first and third in the 11th.  The bullpen was effective until the top of the 14th when Jeurys Familia gave up an RBI single to Billy Hamilton.  The team gives player multi-million dollar contracts over a few years and they just don't perform.  There was no walk-off celebration last night.
