NEW YORK, May 25 (UPI) -- Mike Minor fired 7 1/3 scoreless innings and launched a two-run homer Saturday, propelling the Atlanta Braves over the New York Mets 6-0.

Minor (6-2) scattered three hits and struck out 10 in the dominating 113-pitch performance, issuing two walks.

His two-run shot with Chris Johnson aboard sparked a five-run fifth inning that sealed the victory for the National League East-leading Braves, who notched an eighth straight win.

Freddie Freeman produced a pair of RBI singles as Atlanta cruised to a victory after posting a 7-5, 10-inning win over the Mets earlier Saturday in the resumption of a suspended contest.

Mets starter Dillon Gee (2-6) was tagged for five runs on eight hits over five full innings.

New York dropped a fifth straight.
