NEW YORK - Justin Turner homered twice and the New York Mets stopped a five-game losing streak with an 11-7 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night.
Jason Bay and Josh Thole also connected for the Mets, who banged out 16 hits to break out of a weeklong offensive funk. New York hit four homers in a game for the first time in more than a year.
Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 27 games, and Freddie Freeman ran his own to 20 for the Braves, who have lost four of six.
Jonathon Niese (11-8) gave up a season-high 10 hits, but made it through five innings. He allowed five runs and struck out six to win for the fourth time in five decisions and eighth in 11.
