Braves drop game 1 fo double header with Mets

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

Matt Harvey pitched six hitless innings, John Buck homered and the New York Mets held off another Atlanta comeback, beating the Braves 4-3 Tuesday in the first game of a doubleheader.
    
Harvey (6-1) didn't allow a hit until Jason Heyward's fluke infield single leading off the seventh but tired in the eighth as the Braves tried to rally for the second straight game. Trailing 4-0, Atlanta scored three runs and had the bases loaded before Bobby Parnell, the fourth Mets pitcher of the inning, fanned Chris Johnson to end the threat. Parnell earned his 10th save with a scoreless ninth.
    
Harvey had a career-high 13 strikeouts and surrendered just three hits.
    
Buck homered in the fourth. Braves rookie Alex Wood (0-1) took the loss in his first career start.

Russell County's Cory Rasmus also pitched three innings. He gave up one run in his outing.
