Final Score: New York 4, Atlanta 2

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) – Curtis Granderson and Dilson Herrera both homered to help the New York Mets in a 4-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.

In the eighth, Granderson sent a shot over the wall in right to increase the lead by four.

Atlanta loaded the bases with one out in the home eighth to knock Niese out of the game and Freeman drove in Joey Terdoslavich and Emilio Bonifacio to cut the deficit in half.

Jenrry Mejia came on in the ninth and worked around a one-out single by Ramiro Pena to capture his 27th save of the season.
