ATLANTA (AP) -- Carlos Beltran hit a pair of two-run homers, David Wright added a two-run shot of his own and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 6-4 Monday night to match their 2008 total for wins at Turner Field.

The Mets, who went 1-8 in Atlanta last season, improved to 30-63 at Turner Field since the start of the 1998 season.

Beltran, hitting .400, was 2 for 3 with a walk. The two homers gave him four this season.

John Maine (2-2) earned his second consecutive win despite setting a career high with six walks. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save.

Javier Vazquez (2-3) gave up a season-high six runs in 6 2-3 innings. Chipper Jones homered for Atlanta.
