By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Chipper Jones drove in the go-ahead run in the
seventh inning and the Atlanta Braves prevailed in the matchup of
bullpens in a 5-3 victory over the New York Mets on Thursday night.

The Braves broke a 3-3 tie against the New York bullpen, which
gave up two runs in two innings. Atlanta relievers pitched three
scoreless innings.

Pedro Feliciano (2-3) walked pinch-hitter Brooks Conrad, who
advanced to third on Martin Prado's hit-and-run single to left off
Bobby Parnell. Jones, a .330 career hitter against the Mets, drove
in Conrad with a single to right off Parnell to give the Braves a
4-3 lead.

Pinch-hitter Greg Norton added a run-scoring single off Pat
Misch, New York's third reliever, in the eighth.
