Mets Edge Braves 4-3 in 14 Innings
(NEW YORK) -- Curtis Granderson hit a sacrifice fly in the 14th inning, and the New York Mets prevented a three-game sweep by downing the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Sunday.
Kirk Nieuwenheis led off the bottom of the 14th inning with a walk. He advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Ruben Tejada. Gus Schlosser (0-1) intentionally walked Eric Young Jr. to load the bases, bringing up the slumping Granderson.
"It felt really good," Granderson said. "Any way to help the team win a big game."
Jose Valverde (1-0) earned the win after working a scoreless inning in the top of the 14th. Zack Wheeler started the game for New York, tossing six innings.
David Wright collected four hits for the Mets (9-9), who took advantage of three early errors by Atlanta. The Braves (12-6), had won seven of eight heading into Sunday.
