Mets swept by Braves after 2-1 Sunday loss

Remember when it felt like the sky was falling when the Braves dropped two straight to the Royals and then saw Nick Markakis fracture his wrist during the game that followed?

Well, the Braves, on an eight-game winning streak, have produced one of the National League’s top three winning percentages dating back to July 26, the day Markakis was injured and two days after Dansby Swanson was placed on the injured list.

The only National League teams that entered Sunday with a better record during that span were the Mets and the Dodgers, who have both lost a series against Atlanta within the past two weekends.
