7,684: Wright’s 9th-inning error hands Braves walk-off win

Another way to lose

David Wright’s throwing error on a chopper to third handed the Atlanta Braves a 3-2 walk-off win at Turner Field Tuesday night.

Melky Cabrera was forced to swing the bat after fouling two bunt attempts, and the wild throw allowed Brent Clevlen to score the winning run. Former Met Billy Wagner took the “W.”

Troy Glaus’ third-inning two-run homer was the only blemish on Mets starter Johan Santana’s line, which was 7 innings and those two earned runs on five hits and a pair of walks. Santana struck out four, and he lost his no-hitter on a first-inning single by Jason Heyward, moving the NoNoHitters.com count up to 7,684 New York Mets games without a no-no.

Solo homers in the fifth by Ike Davis and Jeff Francoeur tied the game at 2.
