Wright homers twice as Mets blast Braves, 12-2

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - David Wright drove in five runs with two homers and the New York Mets, responding to criticism from their manager, beat Derek Lowe and the Braves 12-2 on Friday night.

Atlanta leads St. Louis by only 3 ½ games in the NL wild-card race with 11 games remaining in the regular season. The Cardinals gained ground by beating the Phillies.

The Mets matched their season high with 20 hits in ending a six-game losing streak.

Chris Capuano (11-12) gave up two runs on six hits in five innings to earn his second win in three weeks against the Braves.

He pitched a two-hit shutout in a 6-0 win over the Braves in New York on Aug. 26.
