NEW YORK (AP) -- Kris Medlen extended Atlanta's scoreless streak to 31 innings for its best string in more than 20 years, slumping Brian McCann drove in four runs with four hits and the Braves beat the New York Mets 11-3 on a stormy Saturday.

A tornado touched down in Queens about 15 miles away several hours before the game. Dark, ominous clouds swept in later, causing a 75-minute rain delay after the sixth inning.

The NL wild card leaders won their fourth straight. McCann homered, doubled and tied a career high for hits and Dan Uggla kept up his recent resurgence at the plate with three hits and two walks, scoring three times.

Medlen (8-1) allowed four hits and left with an 8-2 lead after the rain and contributed a long RBI double.

Atlanta has won the last 19 games Medlen has started, dating to 2010.
