ATLANTA (AP) - Jeff Francoeur hit a go-ahead solo home run in
the ninth inning off Braves closer Billy Wagner and the New York
Mets snapped a two-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over
Atlanta on Tuesday night.

The Braves have lost three of four and now lead second-place
Philadelphia, a 6-1 winner at Florida, by two games in the NL East.
Atlanta's 35-14 record at home, where they had won 25 of 32, leads
the majors.

Fourth-place New York avoided falling under .500 for the first
time since May 23.

Reliever Manny Acosta (2-1) earned the win after allowing one
hit and three walks in 1 2-3 innings.

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth to
earn his 23rd save in 28 chances.

Wagner (5-2) gave up one hit and one run with one strikeout.
