Torres, Davis lead Mets to 4-1 win over Braves

NEW YORK (AP) - Carlos Torres pitched six impressive innings as a fill-in starter and had an RBI single, Ike Davis turned an angry crowd in his favor with a go-ahead double in a three-run sixth and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 Tuesday night.

John Buck had a run-scoring single and Juan Lagares a sacrifice fly in a sixth inning that helped the Mets beat Atlanta's Kris Medlen (6-10) for the first time in eight starts.

Torres (1-1) gave up seven hits, including a home run to Andrelton Simmons to open the game, in his second start of the season, pitching out of trouble in the first four innings. The one run actually caused his ERA to increase to 0.94 in 28 2-3 innings this season - 12 appearances.
