Shane Carle earned his first save of the season as he worked around two walks in a scoreless ninth. Adam Duvall was 1-for-3 with a double and a run to help pace the offense. Lane Adams was 2-for-3 with a home run, a double and two RBIs.

Jeff McNeil was 4-for-5 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Michael Conforto finished 2-for-6 with a triple and three RBIs. Jay Bruce was 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI.

MLB Betting Trends
The over is 6-2 in the last eight Braves games overall. The under is 10-4-1 in the last 15 Atlanta road games.
The Mets are 10-30 in their last 40 Tuesday games. The under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in New York.
Atlanta has its playoff ticket punched and might take its foot off the gas pedal this week. That won't help against Syndergaard, who unlike teammate Jacob deGrom has received an adequate amount of run support this season. Expect a strong start out of him backed by enough Mets offense.
