ATLANTA — The Braves tried to show the tables — and trumpets — on Edwin Diaz.
The Mets — trailing the Braves by the eventual closing rating of 5-3 within the eighth inning Sunday evening at Truist Park — turned to their nearer, who had not pitched since Wednesday. After two fast outs from Diaz, Atlanta supervisor Brian Snitker changed designated hitter Marcell Ozuna with William Contreras.
Contreras, who had sat Saturday and was out of the lineup Sunday, makes use of “Narco” — Diaz’s viral entrance tune at Citi Discipline — as his walk-up tune. The sellout Braves crowd rose to its ft, made loads of noise and pantomimed taking part in the trumpet.
If the tune and scene bothered Diaz, he took it out on the pinch-hitting catcher. Diaz used a fastball and two sliders to strike out Contreras on three pitches.
The Mets flew in Timmy Trumpet to play the instrument reside forward of one in all Diaz’s appearances in Queens earlier this season. Timmy Trumpet and the Dutch DJ duo generally known as Blasterjaxx are behind the tune, which Mets followers need as their very own — and Blasterjaxx agrees.
“For us, Edwin is the official one, that’s for positive,” Idir Makhlaf, one member of Blasterjaxx, instructed MLB Community final month. “You’ll be able to’t have extra, proper? That’s not possible. You must select your personal tune.”
