Braves pull shaky Kimbrel, hold off Mets 7-5

NEW YORK (AP) Craig Kimbrel hardly ever needs help with the ninth inning. He got some Saturday night.

Jordan Walden nailed down the final out with the bases loaded after Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez pulled his star closer following a shaky performance in a 7-5 win over the New York Mets.

Sidelined recently by shoulder discomfort, Kimbrel threw 24 pitches during his first outing in a week. The Braves didn't want him to go any longer, and Gonzalez thought the reliever was rusty.
