NEW YORK - Chipper Jones hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the Mets 6-5 Sunday in a wild game that included injuries to New York's top two hitters, Jose Reyes and Daniel Murphy.
Jason Heyward, Alex Gonzalez and Jose Constanza homered early for the Braves, who finally solved Mets rookie Dillon Gee. Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to a career-best 28 games.
It was the first major league homer for Constanza - he also got his first stolen base, spiking Murphy in the process.
Reyes, the National League batting leader, was lifted in the second because of stiffness in his left hamstring, the same spot that landed him on the disabled list last month.
