NEW YORK — Catcher Kevin Plawecki made an impressive big league debut, contributing with his bat and glove as the banged-up New York Mets won their ninth straight game by beating the Atlanta Braves 7-1 Tuesday night. The Mets extended their longest winning streak since a 10-game run in 2008. The team record is 11 in row, last done in 1990.
