Simmons' HR leads Braves past Mets

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Andrelton Simmons' two-run home run in the seventh inning lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 3-1 win over the New York Mets in the second of a three-game set.

Evan Gattis, recalled before the game, went 3-for-3 with a solo home run for the Braves, who have taken eight of their last nine games.

Kris Medlen (12-12) gave up just one run on seven hits with nine strikeouts over seven innings to win his second straight start.

Eric Young went 2-for-3 with a run scored, while Daniel Murphy drove in the lone run for the Mets, who have dropped three straight. Carlos Torres (3-3) gave up three runs on seven hits over seven innings to take the loss.
