Conforto hits HR, drives in 3 to power Mets past Braves 7-5

ATLANTA (AP) - Michael Conforto homered and drove in three runs, and the Mets scored five times in the fourth inning off Julio Teheran before holding on to beat the Atlanta Braves 7-5 on Monday night.
 
On the day the Mets placed ace Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day DL with a partial tear of his right lat muscle, Robert Gsellman (1-2) almost blew an early 6-1 lead. Gsellman allowed five runs in five-plus innings.
 
Five Mets relievers combined for four scoreless innings. Jeurys Familia pitched the ninth for his second save.
 
Conforto led off the game with his seventh homer and added a two-run single in New York's five-run fourth inning off Teheran (2-2). With New York's lead down to 6-5, Jose Reyes added a homer off Ian Krol in the eighth.
 
Atlanta's Ender Inciarte hit his fifth homer to lead off the first.
