Mets bullpen game proves to be winning effort in split doubleheader vs. Braves

The Mets put out Marcus Stroman for the start in game one of Monday's doubleheader with the Atlanta Braves, and while he put out a valiant effort over 5.0 innings, he ultimately picked up the loss in what was a 2-0 win for the visitors.

The game two strategy was to put on a bullpen game -- which ultimately was the winning decision, as the Mets bullpen had a stellar collective outing and returned the shutout favor right back to Atlanta, blanking them and helping the Mets grab a 1-0 win.
