NEW YORK (AP) – Johan Santana saved the Mets from a sweep with another spotless outing and rookie Ike Davis hit his latest titanic home run in New York’s 3-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.
Alex Cora and pinch-hitter Josh Thole delivered RBI singles with two outs, and Angel Pagan had three of New York’s 13 hits. The Mets also got flawless relief work from Bobby Parnell and Francisco Rodriguez in their major league-best 13th shutout.
Fantastic at Citi Field for most of the first half, New York averted a three-game whitewash by its National League East rival but finished 2-4 on a disappointing homestand against a pair of first-place teams.
The Mets head into the All-Star break four games behind Atlanta.
