The Mets traded in their first meeting of the 2019 season in Atlanta on Thursday night with their 6: 3 rival in the Braves. >> Box score
Five things you should know about Thursday's game …
1) It's that simple: Pete Alonso is a beast. The rookie crashed his sixth homer of the season, and it was an absolute rocket for low midfield – 454 feet, to be exact. The homer who left the bat at 118.3 km / h was the most affected Homer in Mets history since Statcast was implemented. He also joined Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton in the top 10 of the hardest-hit homers in the Statcast era as he dropped to ninth. Alonso finished the day with two RBI 2-for-4 and raised his average .378.
2) Steven Matz had another good starting point for the Mets and allowed only two runs with four hits over six innings of work. He also beat eight brave and one walk. This start is after a five-inning start against the Nationals, in which he allowed only two hits and no runs. Matz also scored his first win after eight direct decisions. That's what the Mets like to see from the big left.
3) Amed Rosario loves his place at the end of the Order as his bat remains hot. He went with four RBI 2-for-4s, including a triple bomb ̵
4) The Mets-Bullpen, who had recently been shaky, was only allowed one run after his takeover for Matz. It was Luis Avilan who allowed a solo homer to Ronald Acuña Jr. . Robert Gsellman made an inning and allowed two hits but got out of the jam. Jeurys Famila took over Avilan and completed the deal, while Edwin Diaz expelled Freddie Freeman with two men to pick up his fifth husband except the year
