Matt Wisler turned in one of the best pitching performances of his career while the offense flexed its muscles as the Atlanta Braves handed the New York Mets a 12-4 loss Thursday night.

Kurt Suzuki got things started early with a two-run home run off Mets starter Matt Harvey to extend the Braves lead to 3-0. Suzuki had a big night at the plate going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI.

Preston Tucker also had quite a day himself with a pair of double and a team-high 5 RBI. Tucker now leads the team with 18 RBI in 18 games.

As good as the offense was, Matt Wisler was the real story in this one. Called up to replace Anibal Sanchez in the rotation, Wisler turned in one of the best performances of his career allowing two hits and one run over seven innings while striking out 8.
