Wright homers twice in Mets' 4-3 win over Braves

By GEORGE HENRY

ATLANTA (AP) - David Wright hit two solo homers, New York's bullpen pitched five-plus scoreless innings and the Mets overcame an injury to starting pitcher Jonathon Niese in a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.

Niese left the game in the fourth with left shoulder discomfort and the Mets trailing 3-2, but the Mets' bullpen shut down Atlanta for the next 5 2-3 innings.

Closer Bobby Parnell earned his 11th save in 14 chances by facing the minimum in the ninth.

LaTroy Hawkins (2-0) earned the victory after allowing two hits and striking out two in two innings.

The Mets have won 4 of 6, thanks in part to a bullpen that's 1-0 with a 1.55 ERA over the last nine games.

Mike Minor (8-3) allowed nine hits, four runs and two walks in six-plus innings for Atlanta.
