The New York Mets fell (59-68) fell behind early but fought back and fell short in a 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves (81-44) on Tuesday night at Truist Park, evening the three-game series at a game apiece.

New York went into the final inning trailing by a run and had a glorious opportunity to tie the game or take the lead as the first two runners reached base. However, Francisco Alvarez grounded into a double play, and Rafael Ortega grounded out to end the contest.

Daniel Vogelbach provided all of the offense, smacking a two-run home run in the sixth, his 11th of the season.

Tylor Megill allowed three runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings. Adam Kolarek, Reed Garrett, and Brooks Raley posted scoreless outings.

The Mets will try to win the series Wednesday at 7:20 p.m. with Jose Quintana on the bump.
