Austin Riley ended the contest 2-for-4 with a solo home run. Nick Markakis went 1-for-2 off the bench with a solo home run.

Smith homers in loss

Jeff McNeil was 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run and two RBIs. Amed Rosario ended the contest 2-for-4 with a double and two runs.

MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 4-1 in their last five road games. Atlanta is 5-0 in the last five Fried road starts.
The Mets are 1-5 in their last six home games. New York is 0-7 in its last seven games versus the NL East.
Syndergaard has had an uneven season, filled with some dominant starts but also plenty of clunkers. He didn't pitch well his last start, but was in pretty good form before that. Tasked with ending the Mets' skid, I think we get good Syndergaard tonight. Atlanta now has a 6.5-game cushion in the NL East standings and with it being a getaway day, it might step off the gas pedal for this contest.
