Recap: Atlanta vs. NY Mets

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer to back six scoreless innings from Zack Wheeler as the New York Mets blanked the Atlanta Braves 5-0 at Turner Field.

Wheeler (11-10) scattered five hits, walked two and struck out seven. The New York pitchers combined to retire the final 13 Braves batters in Friday's win.

"I got into a lot of deep counts, but I did make the pitches when I had to," Wheeler said.

Atlanta's Julio Teheran (13-13) lost his fourth straight start despite a solid seven-inning effort. He gave up seven hits, with the Duda home run his lone hiccup.

Three times in the first five innings the Braves stranded two runners.

"I had two of those opportunities," said Atlanta left fielder Justin Upton. "You just don't get it done."

Daniel Murphy, who finished 4-for-5, hit a ground-rule double off Teheran with one out in the sixth. Teheran got Travis d'Arnaud to pop out, but Duda crushed a pitch to right field to end the scoreless duel.

The Mets scored three more runs after loading the bases in the ninth. A third straight walk by Jordan Walden forced in a run, and Eric Young Jr. knocked in a pair with a two-out single off Luis Avilan.

Game Notes

Andrelton Simmons had three of Atlanta's five hits ... Carlos Torres, Jeurys Familia and Buddy Carlyle each pitched an inning for New York.
