Braves move into first place after beating the Mets 7-0

Wednesday night, Mets' starting pitcher Jacob deGrom would be cruising against the Braves.

Callaway was holding out hope that deGrom might be OK since the injury happened while he was batting and wasn't a "typical" pitching injury.

"This loss is really just all on me", Syndergaard said. "So he went back out".

"When he came in, he felt some soreness in his biceps", Callaway said. He seems to be heating up, which the Mets sorely need right now.

There was no apparent indication anything was wrong with deGrom prior to his departure at Citi Field. Baby Braves Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. both went 0-for-5.

Montgomery is expected to miss six to eight weeks with the injury, but manager Aaron Boone says there's nothing to suggest he'll require season ending Tommy John surgery. Fans down here treat their teams like a wayward nephew who had all the talented in the world but never quite put it together, and surely never will. "We lost fair and square", Frazier said. "I could hear them, that's for sure, and I think that to have their support here is - you can't compare it".

After deGrom, Mets' pitching was pummeled. When you see him come out of the game, there's concern.

Per The Athletic's Tim Britton, deGrom was diagnosed with a hyperextended elbow. Did the muscles catch and stress the tendons? "The bigger questions is why and how the issue can be prevented from recurrence". He allowed two hits and struck out six before he was replaced by Paul Sewald for the fifth inning.

"I've always been in the American League", he said. "We'll just have to talk through that".

Before departing Wednesday, deGrom allowed two hits and no walks while striking out six over four scoreless innings. He gave up four runs in the inning including two home runs.

DeGrom eclipsed 200 innings for the first time in his career in 2017.

The ace was sent for an MRI, and the team expects to get results Thursday. But that's not going to do us any good.

There are times when the reaction to an event is so obvious that it's hardly worth stating.

One big swing from Jacob deGrom, a few more from the Atlanta Braves, and suddenly Queens is rife with anxiety again. The Mets also have converted starters Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman in the bullpen.

This year's Mets are a very good team, and can withstand a fair amount of adversity. 36 of them, in fact, would end up going for strikes.
