Mets Over Braves, 8-7

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) _ Jason Bay drove in three runs and the New York Mets, after a messy inning by opening-day starter Mike Pelfrey, scored four times in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-7 on Monday.

Kenshin Kawakami, making his Bayfirst start this spring, allowed only one earned run and three hits in three innings for Atlanta. He struck out three.

All four candidates for the Mets’ second base job contributed to the ninth-inning rally. Brad Emaus, Daniel Murphy and Luis Hernandez each had a run-scoring hit as part of the comeback.

Justin Turner was hit by a pitch, and outfielder Scott Hairston also had an RBI single.

Bay finished the day with two hits.
