Here’s a quick recap. The good news is that the Mets opened their homestand with a well-played 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves tonight at Citi Field.

Here’s the scoop:

Dillon Gee had his best start since the All Star break, holding the Braves to two runs in 6.2 innings of work while scattering six hits. He improves to 5-7 with a 3.77 ERA.

Juan Lagares had a huge game on defense with five spectacular catches and then he continued his recent hot streak at the plate going 2-for-3 including a huge two-run homer – his second in three games. This kid keeps getting better and better.

The Mets also got a two hit game from catcher Travis d’Arnaud who doubled and also scored a pair of runs. The beat goes on for TDA.

Jeurys Familia picked up his 14th hold with 1.1 innings of scoreless relief. His ERA is now down to 1.93 for the season. This man is fearless…

Jenrry Mejia saved his 19th game of the season. Hey we won, cheer up!

Up next: Zack Wheeler (9-8, 3.48) will get the nod on Wednesday night against the Braves’ Julio Teheran (12-9, 2.96). Should be a nice matchup. First pitch is at 7:10 PM. Be there!
