the Atlanta Braves beat the New York
Mets 6-1 on Sunday for their season-high seventh straight victory.
Chris Young, who had not walked a batter in two straight starts, appeared to be finding his form in his return to the Mets’ rotation. The 6-foot-10 right-hander took a step back against the Atlanta Braves, when his poor start set the pace for an ugly night for New York’s staff.
The Atlanta Braves hit four solo home runs — two by Alex Gonzalez, to defeat the New York Mets 4-2 in the first of two games Saturday.
