Mets 3, Braves 2

NEW YORK — Juan Lagares hit a two-run homer and ran down one ball after another in centerfield, sending Dillon Gee and the Mets to a victory. Gee stopped the longest losing streak of his career at five games, outpitching Alex Wood in the opener of a three-game series. Lagares had seven putouts and one of them in particular was spectacular — he robbed Wood of a base hit with a diving, tumbling grab in shallow center to end the third inning.
