Gsellman has allowed nine of his 15 earned runs this season in the first inning.

Neil Walker and Rene Rivera had sacrifice flies for the Mets, who have scored only 28 runs in the last 10 games. "I'm not going on the DL, that's not going to happen", he said. Teheran suffered the loss in his most recent start on April 19, when he gave up seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three over four innings as the Braves fell to the Nationals, 14-4.

New York's misfortune was Atlanta's gain, as they cruised to a 5-0 score after just one half-inning of play.

Wednesday a handful of errors - throwing errors by Gsellman and Jose Reyes and a fielding error by Yoenis Cespedes - and generally listless defense were the latest twists in a stretch of frustration for the Mets.

Harry Styles to Spend a Week on 'The Late Late Show'
Styles offers to sing, but Corden makes it clear that as host, he is the official singer. "Zero house guests", he insists. This will be Harry's third appearance on TV since his debut solo single, Sign Of The Times , was released.

"Tonight, I didn't think his stuff was as crisp as we've seen it", Terry Collins said of Gsellman. Ender Inciarte (double) and Jace Peterson (single) added run-scoring hits in the seventh. "But it's all right, I'll fix it". Markakis had three hits, and all eight starting position players for Atlanta had at least one.

Cespedes left last Thursday's loss to Philadelphia with a cramp in his left hamstring and returned to the lineup Wednesday.

Prior to this season, Zack Wheeler hadn't pitched in an Major League Baseball game since 2014 following Tommy John surgery, and Matz is on the disabled list due to a strained flexor tendon. TRAINER'S ROOM Braves: 2B Brandon Phillips exited in the second inning with a left groin strain and is day to day. Gsellman had the fans booing not long after he fired his first pitch, and Teheran again tormented the Mets. UP NEXT New York acquired Syndergaard (1-1, 1.73 ERA) from Toronto in December 2012 by trading away knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (1-2, 3.86), that year's NL Cy Young Award victor, as part of a seven-player swap.

The Mets had originally slated Syndergaard to start Wednesday, but will have Robert Gsellman make his regular turn in the rotation after Tuesday's rainout.
