ATLANTA - Jair Jurrjens couldn't slow Jose Reyes, who had three hits, two steals, an RBI and scored two runs to lead the New York Mets to a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.
Jurrjens (8-3), who began the night with the best ERA in the majors at 1.82, set season highs with five walks while allowing eight hits and four runs in 5 1-3 innings.
Reyes' 34th multihit game - tops in the majors - helped Jonathon Niese (6-5) win his third straight decision. Niese allowed two runs on five hits and no walks in 6 1-3 innings.
Dan Uggla homered off Jason Isringhausen in the eighth to cut the Mets' lead to 4-3, but Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth for his 19th save.
