Mets 7, Braves 4

July 26th, 2013 - By Steve James

John Buck drove in three runs and

Zack Wheeler beat the Atlanta Braves for the second time in seven

major league starts, sending the New York Mets to a 7-4 victory

Thursday.

Daniel Murphy and Marlon Byrd three hits apiece for

the Mets, who gained a four-game series split. But the news wasn’t

all good for New York: Eric Young Jr., a spark in the leadoff spot

since arriving last month, was pulled with pain in his right

knee.

One day after top pitcher Tim Hudson sustained a

season-ending ankle injury when Young accidentally stepped on him,

the NL East-leading Braves caught another tough break. This time,

it was a missed call by the umpires that helped the Mets score

three times in the sixth and led to the ejection of Atlanta manager

Fredi Gonzalez.
