Mets starter Zack Wheeler allowed five earned runs on 12 hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Atlanta Braves. The loss drops him to 9-7 on the year.
Wheeler had tossed 15 scoreless innings over his previous two starts, although those came against the White Sox and Marlins, respectively. The Braves proved a much tougher task. He will look to bounce back against the Royals in his next start.
