Shea Stadium, Flushing, New York
• Summary: Trailing 6-3 in the seventh inning, the Braves used a three-run homer by Edgar Renteria to tie the game and then a three-run home run by Kelly Johnson in the eighth to stun the Mets.
• Hero: Johnson hit two homers to help the Braves win their second series against the Mets.
• Goats: The Mets' bullpen coughed up a three-run lead as Scott Schoeneweis and Aaron Heilman allowed crushing home runs.
• Figure this: Bobby Cox was ejected in the sixth inning for arguing balls and strikes. It was Cox's 127th ejection, four behind John McGraw's record.
• Quotable: "That was one of the most exciting ones I've seen between the Braves and the Mets." -- Johnson
• Elias Says: Tom Glavine has now allowed a home run to the first batter of the game in each of his last two home appearances. In 80 career regular-season starts at Shea Stadium prior to that, Glavine had allowed only one home run to lead off the first inning.
