Mets need to improve overall performance to turn season around.

The New York Mets suffered a 6-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves in the opening game of a three-game series, pushing them below .500 and extending their losing streak to four games. The Mets managed only four hits, three of which came during a four-run third inning that included home runs from Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso. However, they were unable to generate significant offense for the remainder of the game, with their bullpen failing to secure the lead.

Carlos Carrasco started the game for the Mets and was solid through five innings, but allowed three straight batters to reach to begin the sixth and was removed. The Braves' rally was led by Sean Murphy's two-run double and Orlando Arcia's go-ahead single, while Matt Olson, Austin Riley, and Marcell Ozuna also contributed.

Mets' Losing Streak Continues Against Braves

Braves' pitcher Bryce Elder earned his fourth win of the season, striking out eight and giving up four runs on four hits and two walks over six innings. Meanwhile, Carrasco's final line included four earned runs allowed on six hits and two walks and four strikeouts over five-plus innings that consisted of 86 pitches.

The Mets' current record of 30-31 is a cause for concern, especially with their recent struggles. While there is still plenty of baseball left to play, the reality of their current performance is becoming harder to ignore. The team's top players, including Lindor and Alonso, were only able to generate significant offense in one inning, and the bullpen failed to secure the lead.

If the Mets hope to turn their season around, they will need to improve their overall performance. They have several games left to play, but they must find a way to generate consistent offense and secure leads when given the opportunity. Otherwise, they may find themselves falling further behind in the standings.
