NEW YORK, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Chuck James gave up only one hit over eight innings Monday to pitch the Atlanta Braves to a 5-0 victory over the New York Mets.

James (8-3) walked three and struck out one en route to his fourth straight victory. Edgar Renteria and Adam LaRoche each drove in two runs for the Braves.

The Braves got some good news before the game as tests showed that Marcus Giles has a healthy heart and can keep playing. Giles missed the doubleheader against Philadelphia and was told at a Philadelphia hospital that he might have a heart defect.

Braves manager Bobby Cox picked up his 2,158th victory, moving him past Bucky Harris into fifth place on the all-time list. Sparky Anderson is fourth with 2,194.

James was pinch-hit for in the ninth and Macay McBride struck out all three batters he faced to complete the one-hitter.
