NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Minor took a two-hit shutout into the eighth inning after hitting a double and single himself, leading the Atlanta Braves over the New York Mets 6-1 Thursday night.
Minor (6-8) had an RBI single in the second for the game's first run, then doubled and scored in the eighth.
Minor was perfect for four innings before Lucas Duda led off the fifth with a single that just barely touched the glove of leaping shortstop Andrelton Simmons.
The Mets didn't have a runner in scoring position until Travis d'Arnaud opened the eighth with a double. Eric Campbell followed with an RBI single, finishing Minor.
Minor gave up four hits, struck out five and walked none.
Jonathon Niese (7-10) pitched into the eighth inning.
Ryan Doumit homered for the Braves and Emilio Bonifacio got four hits, drove in two runs and stole a base.
