New York Mets DFS Notes
James McCann launched a game-tying, three-run home run in the top of the seventh inning of the Mets' comeback win over the Braves on Tuesday. Charlie Morton had blanked the Mets through six innings before Dominic Smith led off the seventh with a single and Kevin Pillar walked. Then up came McCann, who cranked one over the left-center field wall for arguably his biggest hit with his new club. Another new Met, Francisco Lindor, put them ahead for good with a two-out RBI single later in the frame. McCann's home run was his seventh of the season and first in 20 contests.

Ozzie Albies cranked a three-run home run for the Braves' only runs in Tuesday's loss to the Mets.Tylor Megill silenced the Braves' bats for a while before they got a two-out rally going in the fifth. After Ronald Acuna Jr. and Freddie Freeman singled with two outs ahead of him, Albies deposited a hanging changeup on Megill's first pitch over the right-center field wall and into the Braves' bullpen. The long ball is Albies' fourth over his last 12 games, pushing his season total to 13.
