The New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves on Sunday for the fourth time in five games, but one Atlanta player certainly did not seem too impressed by the NL East leaders. Braves rookie pitcher Spencer Strider, the losing pitcher in Sunday’s 5-2 Mets victory, chalked his opponent’s offensive output up to “a lot of luck” and “weird hits.” Strider concluded by suggesting the Mets’ luck could turn against them in October.
Another divisional rivalry game, another fight in the stands between fans. Two Mets fans wearing Jacob deGrom jerseys violently punched a fan in a Braves jersey in the face on Saturday during a doubleheader at Citi Field, video posted to Twitter shows. It’s unclear what transpired before the video started recording, but one person is trying to hold the Braves fan back. It appears the Braves fan swings first before the fans in the deGrom jerseys landed haymakers that knocked the Braves fan down. One person in the video can be heard loudly egging the Mets fans on, telling them to “f–k him up.” Warning: Graphic language It is unknown what happened to the fans after the fight, which appeared to take place in a section down the right-field line. This isn’t the first time this season fans have brawled in the stands during a rivalry game. Last month, fans of the Yankees and Red Sox got into a violent altercation that resulted in ejections from the stadium.
What could have been a monumental series for the Braves this weekend has quickly turned into disaster. They’ve lost three of the first four games against the Mets, falling 5.5 games back in the division with DeGrom on the mound for the finale. To make matters worse, the Braves also suffered several injuries during Saturday night’s game, beginning with their ace Max Fried, who took a hard tumble while attempting to make a play at the plate.
In what felt like a must-win game for the Braves at Citi Field, the bats came out swinging. Dansby Swanson began the festivities with a double, and Eddie Rosario capped off the first inning with a three-run homer. The Braves would add four more runs in the second, forcing Taijuan Walker out of the game before he could record the fourth out. With an eight-run lead, it looked like most Braves fans would be able to enjoy their Friday night without any worries, but Ian Anderson wouldn’t allow that to happen with an effort that could land him back in Gwinnett.

The Mets had a great day at Citi Field. In game one of the doubleheader the offense exploded for eight runs led by Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor. On the mound David Peterson was fantastic but the bullpen was not so there was a call for trumpets on a day where the offense scored plenty.
The New York Mets and Atlanta Braves’ National League East rivalry was carried on off the field as fans brawled with each other on Saturday night.
