NEW YORK (AP) - Ruben Tejada singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning, Curtis Granderson hit a tying homer in the eighth and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Monday night.
David Wright went deep early, Travis d'Arnaud had an RBI double and Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched seven shutout innings for the Mets, who have won three of four. They took the opener of a four-game series after getting swept by the NL East leaders in Atlanta last week.
New York nemesis Freddie Freeman had three hits and a walk for the Braves, who won nine in a row before Sunday's 3-1 loss to Arizona. Andrelton Simmons singled twice for his sixth straight multihit game.
Carlos Torres (4-4) pitched two scoreless innings for the win.
