The Falcons defeated the Jets 20-2 on Wednesday in Atlanta.
Never mind, it was a baseball game that took place. The Mets were demolished by their NL East rival Braves in a deflating loss that has shrunk their division lead down to two games. They lost another pitcher to an injury in David Peterson, who got shelled. It was another day where the bats did next to nothing. It all comes with Part I of the Subway Series coming this weekend in The Bronx.
To talk about Wednesday’s blowout and look ahead to the Mets-Yankees series beginning Friday, we bring you a special edition of the “Amazin’ But True” podcast with Nelson Figueroa and me, featuring a crossover segment with The Post’s “Pinstripe Pod” hosts Jeff Nelson and Chris Shearn.
Amazin’ But True Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- BLOWOUT LOSS: Mets get embarrassed by the Braves on Wednesday. David Peterson exits with another Mets injury. Mets need bats to start coming alive or they are in trouble. NL East lead down to just two games. Mets have to acquire another starting pitcher right now, because the depth isn’t there.
