Jacob deGrom exits Mets start with hyperextended right elbow

The right-hander was in the midst of one of his strongest stretches as a pro, having extending his scoreless streak to 18 1/3 innings with Wednesday's abbreviated performance.

Paul Sewald replaced deGrom. The scoring barrage began innocently enough, with Freddie Freeman's seeing-eye, bloop-single RBI knocking in the first run (scored by Ender Inciarte). In those four innings, the short-haired ace relented no runs on just two hits while striking out six batters. Baby Braves Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. both went 0 for 5. Matt Harvey would likely rejoin the starting rotation if deGrom misses any time.

Soroka was a first-round pick by Atlanta in 2015 and quickly rose through the minor league ranks. Once he pulled it off his neck and watched it break apart in his hand, Cespedes frowned and chucked the small, remaining piece he held to the ground.

The Mets telecast showed what appeared to be diamonds glistening in the dirt near the bag. Asdrubal Cabrera's walk in the third and Flores' double in the ninth were the only two baserunners NY had after the second inning. Carle will throw a bullpen Thursday and is day to day. This is the 35-year-old's first start against the Braves since October 3, 2005 when he was a rookie with the Marlins.

The Mets have lost four of five games to the Braves and are 1-4 in their last five games at Citi Field. Teheran left his previous start Friday against Philadelphia with upper back tightness but avoided the disabled list.

Vargas took the loss in his season debut Saturday, when he gave up nine runs over 3 2/3 innings as the Mets fell to the San Diego Padres 12-2.
