Minor's arm, bat lead Braves over Mets 6-1

NEW YORK (AP) Atlanta Braves pitchers have always had a knack for being good at the plate, as well as on the mound. Mike Minor is the newest member of the club as he showed off his arm and his bat Thursday night in a 6-1 win over the New York Mets.

"It was fun to have a night like this hitting and pitching," he said.

Minor (6-8) had an RBI single in the second for the game's first run. He doubled and scored in the eighth, then took a two-hit shutout into the bottom half.
