Braves Beat Down the Mets 20-2

ATLANTA (AP) – Ozzie Albies drove in seven runs with five hits, including two home runs, and the Atlanta Braves battered the New York Mets 20-2 for a strong finish to a disappointing month. Mets left-hander David Peterson left the game due to right side soreness in the fourth, leaving his status for his next start unknown. The Braves were 13-15 in June. The Braves led 14-2 when outfielder Albert Almora entered the game to pitch in the eighth with the bases loaded. Almora gave up a three-run homer to Albies, who set career highs for hits, RBIs and by scoring four runs.
