Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Andrew Brown and Lucas Duda homered to back seven strong innings from Dillon Gee, as the New York Mets beat the NL East- leading Atlanta Braves 5-2 to avoid a three-game sweep. Gee (11-9), who also had an RBI, gave up one run on four hits while striking out five for the Mets, who snapped a three-game skid. The right-hander has won four of his last five decisions. Freddie Freeman hit a solo homer for the Braves, who had won eight of nine. B.J. Upton added an RBI. Atlanta starter Kameron Loe (0-2), making his first start since 2007 while with Texas, allowed five runs on 11 hits while walking three over 4 1/3 innings.

Final Score: Chicago 9, Miami 7

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Donnie Murphy hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning, one of four Cubs home runs Wednesday in a 9-7 win over the Marlins. Starlin Castro, Dioner Navarro and Ryan Sweeney added solo homers as Chicago avoided being swept in three games by the only team in the National League with a worse record. Navarro had three RBI and scored twice. Six home runs were hit in the game. Adeiny Hechavarria belted a grand slam for the Marlins and Logan Morrison added a two-run homer, but Miami's three-game winning streak came to an end. Chicago is 3-3 on a nine-game homestand that ends this weekend against Milwaukee. Starter Jeff Samardzija gave up six runs and nine hits in six innings but had nine strikeouts. Carlos Villanueva (4-8) pitched the seventh and got the win and Kevin Gregg worked around two walks in the ninth to earn his 29th save. The Marlins had won three in a row coming into the game on the heels of a 1-10 stretch. They haven't won four games in a row all season.
