ATLANTA —Ben Sheets loved being back in the majors so much that he broke
normal custom for starting pitchers and watched the last three innings from
Atlantas hot dugout instead of the clubhouse. Colin Kaepernick 49er Jersey . “I like to do
that and Ive had very good feedback on it,” he said. “You work so hard to get a
victory. I aint going to leave them out there. Theyre battling for me.” Sheets
pitched six scoreless innings in his first game in two years and the Atlanta
Braves beat the New York Mets 6-1 on Sunday for their season-high seventh
straight victory. Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer in a six-run fifth
inning, and Sheets (1-0) allowed two hits and one walk with five strikeouts in
his first start since July 19, 2010. “I didnt know what to expect,” Freeman said
of his new teammate. “It didnt look like he took two years off.” The Mets have
lost four straight and seven of 10. Atlanta improved to a season-high 10 games
over .500. Johan Santana (6-6) gave up eight hits, six runs, two walks and
struck out three in five innings. The Braves had placed just two runners in
scoring position before Matt Diaz, who began the game with a .514 in 35 career
at-bats against Santana, doubled to lead off the fifth. After Paul Janish walked
on a slider that appeared to cross the outside part of the plate for a
strikeout, Michael Bourn hit a one-out, opposite-field RBI double down the line
in left to score Diaz from second and make it 1-0. Mets pitching coach Dan
Warthen was ejected during a mound visit following Bourns hit. When plate umpire
C.B. Bucknor reached the mound, Warthen began arguing with him, apparently
because Bucknor called Santanas fastball outside on the pitch that preceded
Bourns double. “The Janish pitch—that was a strike,” New York catcher
Josh Thole said. “Im certain. And then the backdoor sinker to Bourn—it was an
outstanding pitch, and you ball that. Again, it changed the course of the game.”
New York manager Terry Collins, who was ejected the day before, came on the
field and spoke with crew chief Dale Scott near the third-base line, but walked
back to dugout without further argument. Martin Prado followed with a sacrifice
fly RBI to score Janish, and Bourn crossed the plate from third on
Jason Heywards RBI single. After Chipper Jones singled, Freeman hit his 12th
homer to give the Braves a 6-0 lead. Ramon Ramirez and Miguel Batista pitched
the last three innings for New York. Kris Medlen replaced Sheets and gave up
Andres Torres RBI single to make it 6-1 in the seventh. Eric OFlaherty got the
third out of the eighth, and Anthony Varvaro pitched a scoreless ninth for
Atlanta. Sheets, unsigned after he missed all of 2011 following elbow ligament
replacement surgery, escaped a jam in the third with runners on second and third
when David Wright flew out to deep right. Sheets threw 88 pitches, 57 for
strikes. In his previous start two years ago, he lost 2-1 to Boston while
pitching for Oakland. Making his 242nd career start, Sheets improved to 91-92
and lowered his ERA to 3.77. Against the Mets, Sheets improved to 5-2 with a
4.05 ERA. The Braves purchased the former Milwaukee aces contract from Double-A
Mississippi before the game. “He mixed his pitches well, and his command was
outstanding,” Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “A little better than I
thought it would be the first time out. He gave us a hell of an opportunity to
win the ball game.” Santana hadnt pitched since twisting his right ankle while
covering first base in an 8-7 loss to the Chicago Cubs on July 6. Since throwing
the Mets first no-hitter on June 1 against St. Louis, Santana dropped to 3-4
with a 5.45 ERA in his last seven starts. He has given up 11 homers over that
span. Santana, who hasnt gotten a win against the Braves since Sept. 2, 2010,
had the shortest start of his career, 1 1-3 innings, in a 9-3 loss at Turner
Field on April 17. “We felt that we threw good pitches and didnt get the call,”
he said. “Its tough when you have a game like this and one pitch could be the
difference in the game. I didnt question anything, and its too bad that a couple
of pitches changed the whole ballgame.” NOTES: The Braves havent had a longer
winning streak since they took 9 straight from May 26-June 3, 2010. ... Santana
threw 95 pitches, 56 for strikes. It was the third time in seven starts that he
has allowed at least six runs. ... Mets RF Lucas Duda will have his left
hamstring examined by a doctor in New York on Monday. He was held out of the
lineup for the second straight game. ... Janish, who was acquired in a Saturday
trade with Cincinnati, played in the majors for the first time this season. The
29-year-old spent the last 3 1/2 months at Triple-A Louisville. ... Prado made
his first start at 2B since 2009. ... Gonzalez said RHP Randall Delgado will be
recalled Saturday to start one of the Braves doubleheader games at Washington.
Delgado was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room on the roster for Sheets.
... Atlanta placed SS Jack Wilson on the DL to make room for Janish. Michael Crabtree Limited Jersey . The
Canadian Football League and its member teams are committed to raising awareness
and funds to tackle womens cancers and making a positive difference in
communities across the country. Michael Crabtree Camo Jersey . —The
worn-out notebook with the blue cover that Scott Pioli drags out of pile of

. Moore spent the last four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a backup and
recorded 157 yards on 22 carries in 2011. His best year came in his first with

. The goal ended Houstons shutout streak at 356 minutes and
was the first goal Houston had allowed in four games. Kansas City (11-6-3, 36
points) earned the penalty in the 41st minute after Houstons Andre Hainault
pulled down Kansas Citys Jacob Peterson from behind in the box. Kansas City
played at a man disadvantage for the entire second half after Peterson Joseph
was given a red card by referee Mark Kadlecik after he tackled Carr from behind
in first half stoppage. Houston nearly took a 2-1 lead in the 65th minute off
