Sept. 29, 2012 at 10:11 PM

ATLANTA, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Mike Minor and four Atlanta relievers teamed up for a five-hit shutout Saturday, a 2-0 decision over the New York Mets.

Minor (11-10) scattered three hits, didn't allow a walk and struck out four in racking up his fifth straight winning decision.

Chad Durbin, Luis Avilan and Jonny Venters combined for 1 2/3 scoreless relief frames and Craig Kimbrel collected his 41st save with a 1-2-3 ninth for the Braves, who have clinched a National League wild-card berth.

Jason Heyward and Martin Prado each drove in a run as Atlanta evened its three-game series.

The loss went to New York's Chris Young (4-9), who gave up only two runs on seven hits through six innings.
