ATLANTA (AP) -- David Wright hit the tying home run in the ninth inning off closer Craig Kimbrel and the New York Mets scored twice in the 10th to rally for a 7-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.

The Mets, who have won two in a row after dropping six straight, scored four of their first five runs on homers before taking a two-run lead off Jordan Walden (1-1) in the 10th.

Pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin drew a two-out walk from Walden and stole second base when closer Bobby Parnell (2-0) squared around to bunt while taking a strike on the first pitch he saw.

New York manager Terry Collins brought in pinch-hitter Mike Baxter, whom Walden hit with a pitch, and Tejada followed with an RBI single that scored Valdespin from second to make it 6-5. Baxter scored on Daniel Murphy's RBI single.
