Gonzalez ejected, Braves lose to Mets 4-3 in 11
NEW YORK (AP) — Not long after the Braves blew a late lead for Mike Minor, manager Fredi Gonzalez nearly blew his top.
Ruben Tejada singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning, Curtis Granderson hit a tying homer in the eighth and the New York Mets beat Atlanta 4-3 on Monday night.
Gonzalez was ejected in the bottom of the ninth for arguing a call that was overturned on replay. After much discussion, Eric Campbell was ruled safe at second on a bunt play when replays showed Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons came off the bag too soon as he took a throw and relayed to first.
The “neighborhood play,” as it’s known, is not reviewable under instant replay rules. But after Mets manager Terry Collins came out to argue, the umpires determined it was the throw from third baseman Chris Johnson that pulled Simmons away from second base.
