Brett Baty Makes Immediate Impact for New York Mets

The first time Brett Baty stepped on the field in the big leagues, he simply took a look around. Then came a moment he’ll remember for a lifetime.

Baty homered in his first major league at-bat, and the New York Mets held off the Braves 9-7 to snap Atlanta’s eight-game winning streak.

After being outscored 18-1 in the first two games of the series, the NL East-leading Mets jumped to a 6-1 lead and barely made it stand up to push their advantage over the Braves back to 4 games.

And Baty was partially to thank.

The 12th overall pick in the 2019 draft, he came up for the first time in the second inning with a runner aboard and the Mets already ahead 2-0 on back-to-back homers in the first off Jake Odorizzi. After taking a ball, Baty connected with a hanging curve on his very first swing in a New York uniform.
