Mets 6, Braves 3

on .

Entertaining game to watch, other than the outcome. Freaking 8th inning. Horacio Ramirez and Kris Benson dueled to a draw for the first 7 innings, giving up 3 runs apiece. The Mets then hit the Braves bullpen in the 8th. Jim Brower (3-2) gave up a 1 out double, John Foster walked a man, then Mike Piazza hit a 3 run homer off of Blaine Boyer. The Braves got their first run in the 4th, when Pete Orr singled, stole 2nd, and scored on an Andruw single. Adam LaRoche hit a 2 run homer in the 7th. The Braves then wasted a great opportunity in the 8th, as Andy Marte pinch-walked, was bunted to 2nd by Furcal, and Orr singled to short. With 1 out, Kelly Johnson tried a suicide squeeze, popped up, and Marte was doubled off 3rd. Ramirez pitched well enough, but this time he didn't get enough run support for a decision. He went 7 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. offensive contributors: Pete Orr was 2-4, filling in for the ill Marcus Giles. Adam LaRoche's homer was his 12th, but he was 1-4. The gNats lost, so the Braves remain 2.5 games back. The Marlins will lose, so the Braves will remain 4.5 games ahead in the Wild Card, but the winning Phillies and Mets, and all the idle teams gain ground. Big matchup tomorrow: John Smoltz vs. Tom Glavine. It's on Turner South.
