ATLANTA (AP) - Bartolo Colon combined with two relievers on an eight-hitter, Ruben Tejada drove in two runs with two hits and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Tuesday night.

Jose Valverde loaded the basses in the ninth before Jason Heyward flied to the warning track in center field to end it.

The 40-year-old Colon (1-1) was dominant through seven innings. He gave up six hits and no walks, struck out five and didn't allow more than one baserunner in any inning until the seventh as he outpitched Atlanta's Aaron Harang (1-1).

Tejada scored on a wild pitch by Harang in the third and had run-scoring singles in the seventh and eighth innings.
