NEW YORK — With the real possibility of losing three consecutive games for the first time in almost a calendar year, Atlanta took just two innings to effectively put that possibility to a hard-hitting, leather-flashing death.

Eddie Rosario smacked a three-run home run as part of the four-run first inning for Atlanta, and it scored four more runs in the second inning on the way to a 9-6 victory over the New York Mets at Citi Field on Friday night. Ronald Acuña Jr. had four hits, and his leaping catch in right to rob Pete Alonso of a two-run homer stunted New York’s attempt at quickly seizing any momentum away from Atlanta in the first.
