PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Braves pitcher Kris Medlen left in the fourth inning with a strained forearm and the New York Mets went on to beat Atlanta 8-2 on Sunday.

The Mets scored seven unearned runs in the eighth inning to break open a tie game. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was in attendance with his family while on vacation.

Facing New York first baseman Matt Clark with two outs, Medlen threw a pitch, grabbed his right elbow and turned his back to home plate. He then removed himself from the game.

Medlen was examined by Mets' physician Dr. Struan Coleman and was diagnosed with a right forearm strain pending an evaluation back in Disney on Monday.
