NEW YORK (AP) -- Kenshin Kawakami outpitched Johan Santana, Brian McCann hit a solo homer and the Atlanta Braves clawed just a bit further into playoff contention with a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets on Thursday night.
Omar Infante and former Mets outfielder Ryan Church also drove in runs for the Braves (64-57), who began the night four games out in the NL wild-card race. They've won nine of their last 12 entering a critical three-game series against fellow playoff contender Florida.
Kawakami (6-9) left the bases loaded in the first and wound up allowing one run and seven hits in seven innings, winning for the first time since July 8.
