New York Mets Offense Comes to Life Against Hated Braves

The New York Mets appear to be finding a groove offensively. And what better way to do so than in a series against their arch-rivals, the Atlanta Braves? The Mets rolled past Atlanta to the tune of 16-4 on Thursday, taking two of three in the mid-week series. Suddenly the Mets have won five of seven after an horrific 0-5 start, and are just 2.5 back of Atlanta in the NL East. Yes, it's only April, but as much as people wanted to bury the Mets after their opening series against Milwaukee, they have shown some life ever since. Maybe they can make something of this season after all. In the three games against Atlanta, the Mets scored 29 runs, that after struggling to score 25 runs over their previous nine games heading into the series. More importantly, the contributions are coming from all over. Stars of the New York Mets' Game: J.D. Stewart's two-run bomb gave the Mets a 7-0 lead. He has now homered in two of the last three games for the Amazins. https://x.com/MLBONFOX/status/1778482484919087408 Brandon Nimmo stays red-hot at the plate. After collecting four hits on Monday, Nimmo racked up a pair of hits, drove in a pair, and scored twice. His RBI double in the second inning gave New York a 2-0 lead. He would later score on an error. Nimmo hit .556 in the three game series. Brett Baty is coming into his own both defensively and with the bat. He had another RBI single on Thursday and is hitting .311 on the year. https://x.com/AnthonyDiComo/status/1778470988348350915 Jeff McNeil and Francisco Alvarez both had huge days. McNeil had two hits and three RBI in the win, while Alvarez continued to rake with two more hits and two more RBI. Alvarez's six RBI are now tied for the team lead with Baty. The exclamation point came from Tyrone Taylor -- the same guy who provided the game-winning hit against Detroit a week ago, cracked a grand slam homer in the ninth inning to blow the game wide open! https://x.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1778512376414773498 The Mets face the Kansas City Royals this weekend at Citi Field. It's KC's first trip to Citi Field since the 2015 World Series. The Royals come in hot having won seven in a row. Dwight Gooden will also have his number retired on Sunday by the Mets.
