Curtis Granderson is still 4-for-his-last-43, but hit a walk-off sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 14th inning, as the Mets beat the Brave 4-3 on Sunday afternoon.
Need to Know: Granderson went 0-6 on the day, but came through when it was needed with a sacrifice fly to left field, scoring Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who walked to start the inning, was moved over by a Ruben Tejada sacrifice. The Braves intentionally walked Eric Young Jr. to set up a double play, but both runners moved up on a wild pitch, getting Nieuwenhuis to third for Grandy’s sac fly.
The Mets bullpen combined for eight scoreless innings, including three from Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Zack Wheeler started and allowed three earned runs over six innings. He walked three and struck out six.
David Wright had four singles, scoring once and driving in one. He now has an 11-game hitting streak.
Lucas Duda went 2-5 with two RBI and a run scored. He struck out two times.
What’s Next: The Cardinals come to town on Monday for a 7:10 p.m. game.
