Riley homers again as Braves win series, inch closer to Mets

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 on Thursday.

The Braves won three games in the unusual four-day, five game series to move within four games of the Mets. Atlanta gave up a combined three runs in the two losses.

"These guys just kept getting after it," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "We pitched really well this series. It's big, obviously. You say that you come in and it's five games against a team that you're chasing, it's good to win the series."
