Tylor Megill ends rookie season on high note as Mets drop Braves

ATLANTA – Tylor Megill’s respectable rookie season received a proper sendoff Friday night.

In his final 2021 start, the right-hander fired five shutout innings, allowing only one hit, in the Mets’ 4-3 victory over the Braves at Truist Park. A June addition to the rotation with the Mets in desperate need of arms, Megill finished with a 4.52 ERA in 18 starts for the team.

Brandon Nimmo homered twice to lead the Mets’ offensive attack. Pete Alonso delivered an RBI double and James McCann a run-scoring single.

A night after clinching their fourth straight NL East title, the Braves didn’t awaken until the sixth inning, scoring a run against Jeurys Familia. In the seventh, Eddie Rosario homered against Heath Hembree. In the eighth, Trevor May allowed a homer to Ehire Adrianza that sliced the Mets’ lead to 4-3 and then escaped, leaving runners on second and third.

Edwin Diaz recorded the final three outs for his 32nd save in 28 chances this season.
