Braves beat Mets to complete Friday's suspended game

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Dan Uggla's base hit in the 10th inning sent home the go-ahead run, and the Atlanta Braves took a 7-5 decision over the New York Mets in the completion of Friday's rain suspended contest.

The Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth to tie the score at 5-5, but the contest was suspended following a 75-minute rain delay.

When play resumed on Saturday, New York's Bobby Parnell worked out of trouble in the ninth by inducing an inning ending double play, but Brandon Lyon (1-2) wasn't as fortunate in the following frame.

He walked Freddie Freeman to start the 10th and Brian McCann ripped a double down the right field line to put runners on second and third. Uggla then pushed the go-ahead run across with a single into left to make it 6-5.

The Braves tacked on an insurance run on B.J. Upton's sacrifice squeeze bunt. Jordan Schafer, pinch-running for McCann, hustled down the third base line and beat Lyon's flip to the plate for a two-run advantage.

Craig Kimbrel locked down his 15th save of the season to secure a seventh straight win for Atlanta. He allowed the first two runners to reach, but got Ruben Tejada to pop out on a bunt attempt.

Justin Turner then grounded into a game-ending double-play to ensure the Mets' fifth loss in six games.
