ATLANTA — Ervin Santana allowed only three hits over eight scoreless innings in his Atlanta debut, Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs and the Braves held off the New York Mets 4-3 on Wednesday night. The Braves led 4-0, but the Mets rallied in the ninth after Santana was removed. Jordan Walden walked Eric Young Jr. and gave up a one-out single to David Wright.
