Matz dazzles in debut as Mets thump Braves & sweep doubleheader

“It was great, especially sweeping the doubleheader,” Mets right fielder Jay Bruce said. “It’s good to have Matz back and pitching well. He looked great and to get [Yoenis Cespedes] back [in the first game] was a lift we needed, and we are going to keep it going.”
