The New York Mets (18-20) were one out away from being no-hit by the Atlanta Braves (24-12) on Saturday evening at Citi Field, but J.D. Martinez spoiled it with a home run before the Mets fell 4-1.

New York managed just five walks through the first eight innings and went 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position, leaving five on base.

Christian Scott made his second Major League start and surrendered three runs on six hits over six innings while walking two and striking out eight. Sean Reid-Foley tossed two scoreless before Jorge Lopez allowed one run.

Box Score

The Mets will try to avoid the three-game sweep on Sunday at 7:10 p.m. Luis Severino will take the ball for New York.
