NEW YORK (AP) -- Chris Johnson hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and Atlanta beat the New York Mets 4-1 on Wednesday after Braves outfielder Jason Heyward was hit in the right jaw by a pitch.

Heyward went down in a heap during a scary scene at Citi Field in the sixth. He was examined by Mets doctors and taken to a hospital for X-rays.

Atlanta, with the best record in baseball and a huge lead in the NL East, got an RBI single from Freddie Freeman and another impressive start by rookie Alex Wood in splitting the two-game series for its 20th victory in 24 games. The Braves also benefited from a disputed call in the 10th.

Johnson then launched a drive to left field on Greg Burke's first big league pitch since he was recalled from the minors on Sunday.
