    Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - David Wright kept the Mets alive with a game- tying solo homer off Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel, and New York rallied for two runs in the 10th to take a 7-5 victory over the Braves at Turner Field.

    Ruben Tejada delivered the go-ahead hit with runners on first and second, spraying a single off Jordan Walden (1-1) into center to score pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin, who reached with a walk and then stole second base.

    Daniel Murphy added an insurance run with a liner up the middle and Jeurys Familia locked down his first major league save with a 1-2-3 tenth inning, sending the Mets to a second straight win on the heels of a six-game slide.

    Bobby Parnell (2-0), one of seven Mets pitchers used on Friday, got the final two outs of the ninth after Brandon Lyon allowed a runner to reach third base. John Buck stroked a two-run homer and Lucas Duda and Marlon Byrd each added solo shots in the victory.

    Evan Gattis hit a solo homer and Andrelton Simmons drove in a pair for the suddenly struggling Braves, losers in seven of their last nine games.

    Justin Upton had a sacrifice fly and Juan Francisco drove in a run, but left the game in the third inning with a sprained ankle.
