NEW YORK, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Brian McCann drove in the decisive run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning Sunday, handing Atlanta a series-sweeping 3-2 win over the New York Mets.

Matin Prado singled to lead off the 10th against Bobby Parnell (4-4) and went to second base on a groundout.

Freddie Freeman was then handed an intentional walk and Dan Uggla coaxed an unintentional base-on-balls to load the bases, and McCann followed with a fly ball to right field for the go-ahead tally.

Craig Kimbrel (1-1) earned the victory with a scoreless top of the 10th and Peter Moylan collected his first save despite allowing a pair of runners in the bottom of the frame for National League wild card-leading Atlanta.

David Wright and Ike Davis each drove in a run for the Mets.
