Mets take 2 of 3 in ATL

The Mets have started well on this 9 game road trip, taking 2 of 3 from the Braves. They took last nights game 6-4. Jenrry Mejis was shaky through 5 innings, striking out 7 and walking 4 and giving up all the Braves runs. Daniel Murphy had 3 hits and 3 rbis. Eric Young Jr. also had 3 hits and stole 3 bases causing havoc whenever he got on. The bullpen has simmered down recently after their horrible series opening the season against the Nats and shut down the Braves for 4 innings. Jose valverde got his 2nd save and is yet to give up a run in 5.1 innings.
Next up is the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for 3 games out west beginning tonite after the Mets arrive there 5:30am EST. Dillon Gee opposes Tyler Skaggs tonite. The Mets get a break with the absence of Josh Hamilton, due to a thumb injury.
