Mets Daniel Murphy Drives in Four Runs as New York Beats Atlanta For 11th Straight Win

NEW YORK (AP) – Daniel Murphy drove in four runs and the New York Mets matched a franchise record with their 11th straight victory Thursday, walking their way to a 6-3 win over the Atlanta Braves behind Bartolo Colon.
The streaking Mets, with the top record in the majors despite injuries to several critical players, finished 10-0 on their first homestand of the season after sweeping a trio of NL East rivals.
This is the fifth time the Mets have won 11 games in a row, and the first since 1990. Next stop, the Subway Series beginning Friday night at Yankee Stadium.
Murphy hit an early three-run double, and the 41-year-old Colon outpitched All-Star Julio Teheran in a matchup of unbeaten starters. New York took advantage of eight walks and tied the 1986 World Series champions for the best start in team history at 13-3.
