The Mets saw their starting pitchers leave early two nights in a row.
Taijuan Walker failed to pitch in the third inning against the Braves in Atlanta on Tuesday after he threw two scoreless frames. He was replaced by R.J. Alvarez.
It was initially unclear why Walker could not continue. SNY indicated he probably felt uncomfortable after running to first base to field a throw from Pete Alonso in the two finals. It happened on a night when Carrasco pitched only two innings after suffering a mild oblique strain.
