Jay Bruce's three-run home run and Wilmer Flores' four-hit game highlighted another strong performance by the Mets' offense in an 8-1 win over the Braves in the second game of a doubleheader on Saturday.
In addition to Bruce and Walker's night, TJ Rivera added a pinch-hit two-run home run, Neil Walker had two hits and two walks, Curtis Granderson hit a double, and Juan Lagares went 1-for-1 with a two-RBI double. The Mets had 12 hits in the game.
Bruce who is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak, is hitting .354 with four home runs and eight RBI during that time frame. Meanwhile, Flores has 11 extra base-hits in his last 32 games dating back to the beginning of May.
The Mets scored a total of 14 runs on the day between both games, which included a grand slam by Yoenis Cespedes in the first game.
The team tied a franchise record by homering in 14 straight road games, which had not happened since 1998. The Mets' 54 home runs on the road are the most in baseball.
