Jones, who has announced he will retire and the end of the season, earned a thunderous round of applause at Turner Field as he walked off the field at game's end.
The likely future Hall-of-Famer went 1-for-2 while Ross' three-run shot provided sufficient offense for the Braves, who have clinched a playoff spot and moved to within three games of National League East-leading Washington with three games remaining.
Kris Medlen (10-1) collected his ninth win in 12 starts, baffling the Mets on three hits over six strong innings. He relinquished just one unearned run and struck out four.

Craig Kimbrel recorded his 42nd save.
New York's Jennry Mejia (1-2) surrendered four runs on six hits over five innings.
