Sad, really. Jo-Jo Reyes (again, he’s not pitching well enough to be called “Joseph”) only went two innings, in which he gave up four runs and two homers. Bobby pulled him, and it’s not usual to see a starter limited to 37 pitches, especially in the second game of a double-header. At any even, the bullpen did well enough, holding the Mets to only one more run.
It didn’t matter. Chipper is out with a back problem (I’m with you, Chip) and McCann sat since it was the second game of a double-header he started the first of. Escobar also took the game off. Infante was the cleanup hitter. This is not a joke, really he was. If the Braves had gotten anything from the cleanup spot, they might have made a game of it, as the third, fifth, and sixth hitters (KJ, Kotchman, and the red-hot Francoeur) all had two hits, and KJ and Francoeur each had doubles. But Infante was 0-4. That is all.
