On Saturday, the New York Mets created bad baseball history for the second time in a row by losing to the Atlanta Braves.

The Mets allowed 27 runs in a doubleheader sweep of their division rivals, just one day after failing to score a run despite 16 baserunners.

Per ESPN Stats & Info:

Today, the Mets tied a franchise record not seen since 1969. They gave up 27 runs in a doubleheader against the Braves, tying the Mets record for most runs allowed in a single game.

The Mets lost game one of the doubleheader 21-3 before falling 6-0 in the nightcap.


It is the latest setback for the Mets, who came into the season with World Series aspirations but ended up selling at the trade deadline, shipping out Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Mark Canha, and Eduardo Escobar.

The Mets are presently 52-65 on the season after the losses. They are only 0.5 games ahead of the Washington Nationals in the National League East and are in danger of finishing last in the division.

The Braves, on the other hand, remain the finest team in baseball. They are now 75-41 in their pursuit of the top overall spot in the National League playoffs.

These two clubs will square off again on Sunday at 7:10 p.m. ET. Yonny Chirinos of the Braves pitches against Mets youngster Kodai Senga.

Chirinos has a 5-4 record with a 4.83 ERA, while Senga has an 8-6 record with a 3.24 ERA.
