Happy Recap: Mets 3 Braves 2

The Mets really showed some championship heart this weekend by coming into Atlanta and sweeping the Braves after the diastrous series in Philadelphia. I will officially declare the Braves dead for this season.

The Mets came off a crushing series and handled the Braves in 3 games, allowing only four runs.

Tom Glavine fought back after giving up a run in the first inning on two hits and a walk. He might have gotten out of it had Wright come home with the ground ball hit by him, but only 1 run was good enough, and it was the only one he would allow.

Glavine then got the run back himself with a bases loaded sac fly that could have been a lot more, but Andruw Jones tracked it down.

David Wright stayed on fire by slugging his 25th homer of the year to give the Mets a 3-1.

Glavine, Sosa and Heilman held the lead and turned it over to Wagner. The fact that he gave up a run again was troubling, but he did nail down the victory which is all you can ever ask for from a closer.

And this was a huge victory. A three game sweep in Atlanta, that didn't seem possible on Thursday afternoon after the Phillies losses.

Just an incredible turn of events for the Mets, and it saved the season.
