ATLANTA — Bartolo Colon combined with two relievers on an eight-hitter, Ruben Tejada drove in two runs with two hits and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Tuesday night. Jose Valverde loaded the basses in the ninth before Jason Heyward flied to the warning track in center field to end it. The 40-year-old Colon (1-1) was dominant through seven innings.
