Mets Shut Out, Swept by Braves


Julio Teheran gave up only one hit in seven scoreless innings, Pedro Ciriaco's pinch-hit single in the seventh scored the only run and the Atlanta Braves shut out the New York Mets 1-0 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

The Mets have lost five straight and scored no more than one run in four of the losses.

Matt Harvey (7-5) matched Teheran through six scoreless innings before giving up Ryan Lavarnway's two-out double and Ciriaco's run-scoring single up the middle.
