NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Lowe outlasted Johan Santana in a matchup
of aces, pitching the Atlanta Braves to an 8-3 victory Monday night
that ended the New York Mets' seven-game winning streak.
In a season-long trend that has become maddening for the Mets,
they provided Santana with little support on offense or defense.
Jose Reyes' two-out error in the seventh inning led to four runs,
saddling Santana (4-2) with his second loss this season when he did
not allow an earned run.
He was pulled with the score tied at 1. Matt Diaz's two-run
single off Pedro Feliciano snapped the tie in the seventh, and
Casey Kotchman followed with another two-run single that made it
Lowe (5-1) took a three-hitter into the seventh and won his
fourth straight start.
