HRs by Brown, Duda lead Mets over Braves

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Andrew Brown and Lucas Duda homered to back seven strong innings from Dillon Gee, as the New York Mets beat the NL East- leading Atlanta Braves 5-2 to avoid a three-game sweep.

Gee (11-9), who also had an RBI, gave up one run on four hits while striking out five for the Mets, who snapped a three-game skid. The right-hander has won four of his last five decisions.

Freddie Freeman hit a solo homer for the Braves, who had won eight of nine. B.J. Upton added an RBI.

Atlanta starter Kameron Loe (0-2), making his first start since 2007 while with Texas, allowed five runs on 11 hits while walking three over 4 1/3 innings.
