Braves vs. Mets Score: Heyward, Uggla Homer In 3-0 Victory

The Atlanta Braves continued their winning ways on Friday night against the Mets, winning their third-straight game in shutout fashion by a score of 3-0. The club has not allowed a run to score in upwards of 28 innings now.

Paul Maholm made the start for the Braves and worked 5.1 innings. He scattered five hits and three walks, striking out six in the process. He is now 12-9 on the season with a 3.67 ERA.

Jason Heyward hit a solo homer in the fourth inning to give Atlanta a 1-0 lead. After smacking a double down the left field line in the seventh, Dan Uggla came around to score on a throwing error and then a sacrifice fly off the bat of David Ross. Uggla hit a solo homer in the top of the ninth to give the Braves a key insurance run as the lead moved to 3-0.

Craig Kimbrel entered the ninth and recorded his third save in as many days, striking out two batters as he worked around a leadoff walk.

The Braves and Mets will meet again on Saturday afternoon at 4:05 p.m. ET.
