The Mets rallied in the ninth, but lost to the Atlanta Braves 6-5 on Saturday night at Truist Park.

Here are some key takeaways …

Carlos Carrasco started off the bottom of the first strong, striking out the first two batters before Freddie Freeman singled. Carrasco then struck out Dansby Swanson to end the side. He continued to pitch well, tossing a 1-2-3 second inning.

With two outs in the bottom of the third, Joc Pederson launched a solo home run to center field off Carrasco as the Braves went up 1-0. Orlando Arcia doubled to left, and scored on Freeman’s single to center field to put Atlanta up 2-0.

– Carrasco gave up another two-out home run in the bottom of the fourth inning, this time a two-run shot to left by William Contreras to put the Braves up 4-0. Carrasco walked Freeman and Arcia in the bottom of the fifth with one away. After getting a lineout, he let up an RBI single to Eddie Rosario to make it 5-0.

Michael Conforto recorded the team’s second hit of the night in the top of the sixth with a single to center field with one out. Pete Alonso drove in Conforto from first with a double to left field, making it a 5-1 game.

– Carrasco’s night came to an end after 5.0 IP, allowing five earned runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks. He ends his first season with the Mets with a 1-5 record and a 6.04 ERA over 53.2 IP.

Robert Gsellman came in to pitch the sixth, his first appearance since June 19. He hit the first batter he faced, plunking Guillermo Heredia in the foot. The righty then settled in a bit, getting a flyout and strikeout. Pederson singled to center, and then Arcia singled through the infield to left to put Atlanta up 6-1. Freeman grounded out to second to end the inning.

Francisco Lindor tripled to left in the top of the eighth inning for hit No. 1,000 in his career. Conforto crushed a two-run homer to right field, making it a 6-3 game.

In the top of the ninth, James McCann doubled and moved to third on a wild pitch. Kevin Pillar drove him in with an RBI triple, as the Mets trailed 6-4. Brandon Nimmo delivered with a base hit through the infield to make it a 6-5 game. Jacob Webb came in to get the final out, but walked Conforto to move the tying run into scoring position. Runners advanced on a wild pitch, so Atlanta then chose to intentionally walk Alonso, but Jonathan Villar grounded out to second to end the game.

What’s next

The Mets close out their regular season against the Braves on Sunday at 3:20 p.m. on SNY.

Noah Syndergaard will open for the Mets, while the Braves have not yet announced their starter.
