ATLANTA (AP) -- Jason Heyward singled to cap a three-run rally
and the Atlanta Braves took advantage after the umpires reversed a
call, beating the New York Mets 8-7 Saturday for their sixth
The Braves' comeback prevented a shaky R.A. Dickey from getting
his 11th win in a row.
Mets manager Terry Collins was ejected while disputing a call in
Atlanta's two-run fifth.
Third base umpire Dale Scott, the crew chief, initially ruled
left fielder Jordany Valdespin made a diving catch on Heyward's
liner, with Martin Prado trapped while returning to first base for
an apparent inning-ending double play.
But after the umpires conferred, they ruled -- correctly, as
replays showed -- that Heyward's ball bounced. The umpires then
placed Prado safely on second.
