HR: NYM - None   ATL - J. Upton (1),J. Upton (2)

Recap:

Eric Young Jr. and Daniel Murphy each had three hits and New York's bullpen tossed four scoreless innings in relief of Jenrry Mejia to carry the Mets to a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves in the rubber match of a three-game series from Turner Field.

Young did it all for the Mets, stealing three bags and scoring four times while Murphy finished with three runs batted in. David Wright, Ike Davis and Juan Lagares also drove in a run apiece to help New York win its fourth game in the last six following an 0-3 start to the season.

Mejia struck out seven but allowed four runs on six hits and four walks over five frames. Three New York relievers held Atlanta to just a hit over the final four innings. Carlos Torres (2-0) struck out three in two innings, Kyle Farnsworth tossed a perfect eighth and Jose Valverde worked the ninth for his second save of the season.

Justin Upton finished 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs for Atlanta, which got just 4 1/3 innings from starter David Hale. The righty yielded four runs -- three earned -- on five hits and five walks. Luis Avilan (1-1) took the loss after allowing Lagares' RBI single in the seventh, which proved to be the difference.

Aided by Ryan Doumit's throwing error, New York manufactured a run in the top of the first to take an early lead. Young led off the contest with a single, stole second and easily took third when Doumit's throw to second sailed past the bag and into center field. Murphy then grounded out to first, allowing Young to trot home without a throw.

After Upton's second inning homer tied it, the Mets put two runs across in the third. Wright's RBI single highlighted the frame, and Murphy scored two batters later on Davis' dribbler back to the mound.

Atlanta briefly took the lead with three runs in the home half. B.J. Upton tripled with one out and scored on a Freddie Freeman single to center. Two batters later, Justin Upton connected on his second long ball of the game that traveled an estimated 477 feet. It was the longest home run at Turner Field since Sept, 2010.

Young tripled to start the fifth and Murphy drove him in with a single to left. The Mets put runners on second and third with one out in the frame, but Anthony Varvaro relieved Hale and got the final two outs to keep it knotted at 4-4 until the seventh.

Murphy singled to start the seventh, moved to second on a wild pitch and stole third, allowing him to come home on Lagares' two-out single. Murphy's RBI double with two gone in the eighth resulted in the final tally.

The Mets went 4-for-15 with runners in scoring position while the Braves hit just 2-for-10 with RISP.

Recap:

Ervin Santana tossed eight scoreless innings in his Braves debut and Atlanta topped the New York Mets 4-3 in the middle test of a three-game set.

Santana (1-0) struck out six and scattered three hits for the Braves, who snapped a two-game skid.

Santana was signed to a one-year deal on March 12 after Atlanta lost starters Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen for the year due to elbow surgery, while Mike Minor is on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left shoulder.

Jason Heyward snapped an 0-for-22 skid with a leadoff homer and tallied three hits, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in the triumph.

Zack Wheeler (0-2) allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings for New York, which fell to 3-5.

Heyward fouled off four straight fastballs before launching a blast into the front row of seats on the 11th pitch of his at-bat in the first inning to make it 1-0.

Gattis doubled and Santana singled two batters later to put runners on the corners in the fifth. Heyward then ripped an RBI single to right before Andrelton Simmons laced a base hit to load the bases for Freddie Freeman, who brought two home with a single to left.

Eric Young worked a leadoff walk and David Wright hit a one-out single against Jordan Walden before Craig Kimbrel came on in the ninth. He walked Curtis Granderson to load the bases for Lucas Duda, who fanned for the second out.

Juan Lagares grounded a single up the middle to plate Young and Wright and Travis d'Arnaud lined a base hit to right to score Granderson and cut the deficit to 4-3.

Kimbrel, though, struck out Ruben Tejada to pick up his fourth save of the year.

Twenty nine of Santana's first 30 pitches of the game were strikes ...

The Braves were 4-for-7 with runners in scoring position ... Heyward and Freeman each have four RBI so far this season.

They will be facing the debut of their late free agent signing Ervin Santana, who is 1-0 vs the Mets in his career with a 1.50 ERA. The Mets as a group that have faced him are batting .250.

Eric Young Jr. is 3 for 4 vs Santana. Santana has not pitched a game since March 25th in exhibition.

The Braves will look to even the series and will face young Zack Wheeler. Wheeler has had some success against Braves going 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA. He is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in Turner Field (Home Town). The Braves as a team are batting .196 vs Wheeler, but Freddie Freeman is batting .667 with a HR against him. Dan Uggla is batting .400 with a homer as well. Zack went 6 innings in his first start, giving up 7 hits and 3 runs in the loss.

Let's see if Zack Wheeler can flash some more magic in Atlanta in front of his home crowd and shut down the Braves!  LGM!

HR: NYM - None   ATL - None

Recap:

Bartolo Colon tossed seven scoreless innings and the New York Mets blanked the Atlanta Braves, 4-0, in the opener of a three-game set.

The 41-year-old Colon (1-1), who went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA last season for Oakland, bounced back after surrendering nine hits and three runs in six innings in a loss to Washington last Wednesday. He fanned five and yielded six hits in Tuesday's win.

Ruben Tejada tallied a pair of RBI singles and scored twice for the Mets, who have won 3-of-4 since being swept by the Nationals in their season-opening, three-game series.

Aaron Harang (1-1) gave up a run on two hits and four walks while fanning nine for Atlanta, which has dropped back-to-back tilts on the heels of a four-game winning streak.

The Braves commemorated the 40-year anniversary of Hank Aaron's 715th home run in a pregame ceremony. Aaron moved past Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list when he went deep against the Los Angeles Dodgers' Al Downing on April 8, 1974 in old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.

The Mets opened the scoring in the third despite not recording a hit, then added two more runs in the seventh and another in the eighth.

Tejada walked to lead off the third before Young worked a free pass two batters later. Tejada moved to third on Daniel Murphy's flyout to right and scampered home on a Harang wild pitch.

Gus Schlosser came on for Harang to begin the seventh and surrendered a bloop double to Travis d'Arnaud, who crossed the plate on Tejada's base hit to right-center. Tejada advanced to second on Colon's sacrifice bunt and scored on Young's single to right.

Tejada's RBI single in the eighth made it 4-0.

Kyle Farnsworth fired a 1-2-3 bottom half and Jose Valverde twirled a scoreless ninth to seal the win.

Game Notes

Eric Young and Daniel Murphy had two hits apiece ... Bartolo Colon was 3-0 with a 1.57 ERA in three starts against Atlanta coming in, but they all came in 2002 when he was with the Montreal Expos ...

The Mets were 3-for-11 with runners in scoring position.
