Harang shuts down Mets; Braves avert 4-game sweep

NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Harang allowed four hits in seven innings, and the Atlanta Braves used early offense against Bartolo Colon to beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Thursday night and avert a four-game sweep.

The Braves snapped a four-game losing streak and ended the Mets' season-best, four-game winning run. New York hasn't swept a four-game set from Atlanta since July 1989.

Harang (9-6) won his fourth straight start and fifth game in six outings, topping the Mets for the second time this season in three appearances — allowing a total of two runs. He struck out two and walked four.

Craig Kimbrel worked out of an eighth-inning jam and got four outs for his 28th save in 32 opportunities. Andrelton Simmons, Freddie Freeman and Ramiro Pena all had two hits.
