UPDATE: In the seventh, Teheran got Jay Bruce to pop out, struck out Yoenis Cespedes and then . . . Asdrubal Cabrera golfed a clean double down the right field line. Oh well. The game is still pretty fun. At least if you’re not a Mets fan.
3:04 PM: I’m watching the dang game and I didn’t realize until a few moments ago, but Braves starter Julio Teheran is no-hitting the New York Mets through six innings of their game at Citi Field this afternoon.
The reason I didn’t notice it was because I’m still reeling from the murder spree I’ve been witnessing this afternoon. The murder is of the Mets pitching staff by the Braves hitters. As I type this it’s 11-0 in the top of the seventh. Kurt Suzuki, Ronald Acuña, and Ozzie Albies all have homers and Nick Markakis is 3-for-3 with three RBI. It’s been like batting practice. They just chased Matt Harvey, who gave up five runs in two innings of work. Part of me wonders if that’s the last work Harvey ever gets as a Met.
As for Teheran, he’s only at 71 pitches though sixth and has walked only one guy and has struck out five. We’ll keep you posted.
