Braves 14, Mets 6: Dan Uggla belted a two-run homer during a four-run third inning and Juan Francisco and Freddie Freeman also launched two-run shots as host Atlanta took two of three from rival New York.

Martin Prado had a two-run double and Michael Bourn added a pair of RBI singles for the Braves, who set a season high in runs en route to winning for the seventh time in eight games.

After Prado ripped a double down the third-base line to give Atlanta 4-3 lead in the third inning, Uggla recorded his first hit in 25 career at-bats versus R.A. Dickey (2-1) by launching a shot over the left-field wall.

David Wright blasted a two-run double and reached base at least twice for the ninth straight game, becoming the first player to do so since Seattle's Mike Cameron in 2002. With his run-scoring single in the fifth inning, Wright also tied Darryl Strawberry for the franchise lead with 733 RBIs.

Cristhian Martinez (1-0) relieved ineffective starter Jair Jurrjens and allowed one run over two innings to secure the victory.

Dickey (2-1) saw his streak of 14 consecutive quality starts emphatically come to an end. He permitted eight runs on as many hits in 4 1/3 innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Atlanta, which recorded six multiple-run innings on Wednesday, scored 23 runs in its last two games. ... Former MLB and NFL star Bo Jackson threw out the first pitch. ...
