‘It doesn’t feel good at all’: Mets attempt to regroup after dropping 2 in Atlanta

ATLANTA — Inside the Mets’ clubhouse, 20 minutes after their 4-2 loss to the Braves on Saturday night, a few position players sat at their lockers staring at the floor or not looking at anything. It was quiet. The mood was sobering.

It shouldn’t be like that. In a streak that couldn’t have been billed with any higher prominence, the Mets configured settings to have their impressive aces Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer field the first two games. Things were already in the Mets’ favor; They came here with a one-game lead. With deGrom and Scherzer playing back-to-back nights, their lead in the National League East should grow. Instead it disappeared. The Mets couldn’t meet at the moment.

Describing the feeling afterwards, center fielder Brandon Nimmo called it awful.

“These are our best shots and they stuffed them in our faces,” said Nimmo. “It doesn’t feel good, no. It doesn’t feel good at all. But we have to find a way to get back on our feet tomorrow and give everything we have.”

It’s not cliché or gamer language. The Mets really should be doing this. It’s no exaggeration to call Sunday’s game, the series finale, the most important for New York in quite some time.
