ATLANTA (AP) -- Mike Minor pitched 6 1-3 sharp innings to win his fifth straight decision, Martin Prado and Jason Heyward each had an RBI and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 2-0 on Saturday night.

Chipper Jones, who played his next-to-last regular-season game at Turner Field, was hitless in four at-bats.

Craig Kimbrel earned his 41st save of in 44 chances with a scoreless but shaky ninth.

The Braves have won six of seven and 11 of 15, but they began the night four games behind Washington in the National League East with six games to play.

If they don't win the division, the Braves will host a wild-card playoff game next Friday.
