Braves' sweep of Mets historic

The Braves, who entered the series with a 58-91 record, swept their three-game set against the Mets. It marks only the third time in Mets franchise history that they were swept in a home series of at least three games by a team that entered the series at least 30 games under .500, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

Given the circumstances, Ender Inciarte made one of the plays of the year, robbing Yoenis Cespedes of a walk-off home run for the final out of the game. Inciarte was shaded slightly to left-center and had to range to right-center and then make the leap. Incredible. Oh, and the Braves swept the series.
