For the first time in the 2022 season, Mets fans got what they’ve been dreaming for since Opening Day: a Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation. And it lived up to the hype in every possible way.

Braves jump out to early lead, hold on for 9-6 victory over the Mets

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Melts squander early opportunities and rally late, only to fall short in second game of pivotal series. After retiring Ronald Acuna Jr. on a pop-out to start the game, Taijuan Walker ran into all sorts of struggles—first physically, seeming to cramp or possibly hurt himself on a botched pitch to Matt Olson—before struggling with results, as the Braves struck for four runs, with the big blow a one-handed Eddie Rosario home run.
