Gon­za­lez ejected, Braves lose to Mets 4-3 in 11

The Covington News - - WORLD -

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.
