The Braves extended their season-best winning streak to seven games. The Mets have lost four straight and seven of their last eight games and are a season-worst 11 games below .500.

Teheran (8-5) gave up four hits and three walks while lowering his ERA to 2.29. Jordan Walden pitched a perfect ninth for his third save as closer Craig Kimbrel received a night off.

The NL East-leading Braves remain one-half game ahead of Washington.

New York rookie Jacob deGrom (1-5) was undone by his season-long control problems in a long first inning.
