ATLANTA (AP) -- Jeff Francoeur, back in the lineup after a rare night off, homered and drove in four runs to help the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 11-4 on Wednesday night for their third straight win in the series.
Francoeur did not play in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, ending his streak of 370 consecutive games played. It was his first game off since Oct. 1, 2005.
Braves rookie Jair Jurrjens (5-3) gave up only one earned run in seven innings for his second win over the Mets this season. Jurrjens gave up five hits and two runs with two walks and a strikeout.
Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (2-5) gave up six runs on eight hits in four innings.
