Sean Newcomb turned in a dominant performance on the mound to help the Atlanta Braves move into first place with a 7-0 win over the New York Mets.

Freddie Freeman put the Braves on the board first in this sixth with an RBI single. Freeman was 3-for-4 on the night raising his average to .333 for the season.

Ender Inciarte is thriving in the ninth spot of the order and gave the Braves some insurance in the seventh with his first home run of the season.

Newcomb was the story in this one. He continues to improve and was dominant allowing just two hits over seven innings while striking out eight and walking just one.

Johan Camargo replaced Dansby Swanson late and helped Atlanta blow the game open with a two run homer in the eighth.

Ryan Flaherty made it back-to-back jacks as he followed Camargo with a solo shot that cleared the 408 ft sign in center field.
