Braves Win Suspended Game; Minor Shuts Out Mets, Homers In 6-0 Win

Mike Stobe

Dan Uggla's hit in the 10th won the suspended game, and Mike Minor hit a two-run homer in shutting down the Mets for Atlanta's eighth straight victory.

The Braves had to wait a day, but they outlasted the Mets in 10 innings of their suspended game, winning 7-5; Mike Minor had himself a day on the mound and at the plate, dominating Mets hitters and hitting a two-run homer of Atlanta 6-0 win.

Ramiro Pena's leadoff double in the ninth went for naught, but a leadoff walk to Freddie Freeman by reliever Brandon Lyon in the 10th led to trouble for the Mets. Brian McCann doubled and Dan Uggla followed with a broken-bat single to score Freeman. B.J. Upton laid down a squeeze bunt to chase home pinch-runner Jordan Schafer just ahead of the tag for insurance. Craig Kimbrel worked around a two-on-no-out situation to record his 15th save.

In the original scheduled game of the evening, Mike Minor was the star of the show. He and Mets starter Dillon Gee breezed through four innings, each putting up a zero, but then the fifth inning happened.

Gee got two quick outs before Chris Johnson singled, bringing Mike Minor to the plate. Minor entered the game 1-for-16 as a hitter, but he surprised everyone when he drove a fastball just inside the left-field foul pole for a two-run homer. Immediately thereafter, the offense picked up. Four straight hits, capped by Freddie Freeman's RBI single, gave Atlanta a 5-0 lead. Another run-scoring hit by Freeman in the seventh put a lid on the scoring for the Braves.

Minor gave up just three hits in 7.1 innings; he walked two and struck out 10, the first time any Braves starter has struck out that many in a game this year. The win was the sixth of the season for Minor and the eighth straight for the Braves.
