NEW YORK (AP) — Austin Riley concluded his big week at Citi Field by hitting a two-run homer and finishing with three RBIs, and the Atlanta Braves inched closer to the NL East-leading New York Mets with a 6-3 victory.
The Braves won three games in the unusual four-day, five-game series in New York to move within four games of the Mets.
Riley made it 2-0 in the fourth when he took Taijuan Walker deep to left-center. He added an RBI single in the fifth.
Riley had four homers and seven RBIs in the last three games of the series. Pete Alonso hit a long homer for the Mets.
