ATLANTA — David Wright hit the tying home run in the ninth inning off closer Craig Kimbrel and the New York Mets scored twice in the 10th to rally for a 7-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. The Mets, who have won two in a row after dropping six straight, scored four of their first five runs on homers before taking a two-run lead off Jordan Walden (1-1) in the 10th. Pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin drew a two-out walk from Walden and stole second base when closer Bobby Parnell squared around to bunt while taking a strike on the first pitch he saw.
