Mets Raise Rally Flag, Beat Atlanta, 2-1
The New York Mets had to overcome a good performance from Atlanta pitcher Yeralf Torres to claim a 2-1 win at Citi Field. Torres went 7 innings and allowed 1 run. The victory gives New York a record of 17-17.

Elys Escobar drove in one run for New York. The 25-year old catcher had a key at-bat in the bottom of the eighth. With no one out and runners on 1st and 3rd, he broke a 1-1 tie with a run-scoring sacrifice fly off Joel Nelson. It was his 12th RBI of the season.

Escobar said the team appreciates the support from the fans. "I'm glad we could reward them with a good win," he said after the game.
