Minor leads Braves over Mets for 8th win in row
By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- Light-hitting pitcher Mike Minor homered for his first two RBIs in the majors and struck out 10 as the Atlanta Braves posted their second win in a matter of hours, beating the New York Mets 6-0 Saturday for their eighth straight victory. Earlier, Dan Uggla hit a go-ahead single in the 10th inning and the Braves won 7-5 in the resumption of a game suspended because of rain Friday night after eight innings with the score tied. Minor (6-2) then pitched 7 1-3 innings of three-hit ball, sending the Mets to their fifth loss in a row overall and eighth straight at Citi Field. Minor was hardly a force at the plate coming in - he was a paltry 8 for 108 (.074) in four seasons, striking out in exactly half of those at-bats. He perked up for his first two-hit game in the majors.
