Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Josh Satin doubled in the go-ahead run in the
top of the seventh and the New York Mets edged the Atlanta Braves, 4-3, in the
final tilt of a rare five-game set at Turner Field.
With Mike Minor (8-3) pitching for the Braves, Omar Quintaniila doubled to
start the frame. Satin then took a 2-1 pitch and doubled to right to give the
Mets the lead for good.
LaTroy Hawkins (2-0) allowed just two hits over the fifth and sixth innings to
pick up the win and Bobby Parnell pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to notch his 11th
David Wright went 3-for-4 and clubbed two home runs, while Andrew Brown also
hit a solo shot to help the Mets take three of five in the series.
New York starter Jon Niese lasted just 3 1/3 innings before leaving the game
with discomfort in his left shoulder. On his final pitch, he winced in pain
and immediately motioned towards his shoulder. He ended up yielding eight hits
and three runs with five strikeouts.
