    Summary of 2 articles · Updated May 3, 2013
    Added Mets manager Terry Collins, "I'm not sure how many hits we've ever gotten off Kimbrel, let alone a home run." Marlon Byrd was hardly surprised to see David Wright crush a home run off Braves closer Craig Kimbrel . "We expect it," Byrd said. Wright hit the tying home run in the ninth inning and the New York Mets scored twice in the 10th to rally for a 7-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. The Mets, who have won two in a row after dropping six straight, scored four of their first five runs on homers - including a solo shot by Byrd in the eighth - before taking a two-run lead off Jordan Walden in the 10th. In the 10th, pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin drew a two-out walk from Walden and stole second base when closer Bobby Parnell squared around to bunt while taking a strike on the first pitch he saw.
