The Mets had stormed back late last night against the Braves to tie the game 5-5 after eight innings just before crew chief Dale Scott decided to halt the game, to be resumed later. At 6:10 PM ET tonight, the game was unpaused and the Braves quickly retook the lead on a Dan Uggla RBI single in the tenth inning. B.J. Upton added an insurance run on a squeeze bunt to put the Braves ahead 7-5. Craig Kimbrel had a shaky tenth inning, putting runners on first and second with no outs, but a Ruben Tejada bunt pop-up and a Justin Turner double-play ended the threat quickly as the right-hander notched his 15th save of the season.
The victory marks the seventh in a row for the red-hot Braves, their second streak of at least seven wins. They won ten games in a row between April 5-16, when they started out 12-1.
