Fourth straight challenge goes Mets' way

NEW YORK -- Mets manager Terry Collins' replay staff is on a roll.

With two outs in the top of the eighth inning and the Braves ahead of the Mets, 3-1, Jayson Heyward rolled a grounder to New York first baseman Lucas Duda.

Duda shoveled a short toss to pitcher Bartolo Colon, who was already in a footrace to the bag, but the first-base umpire ruled that Heyward was safe on the close play. After waiting for a signal from bench coach Bob Geren on the phone, Collins challenged the call, and after 18 seconds, it was overturned to give the Mets the out and end the inning.

The Mets have now won four straight challenges -- three during the four-game series -- all against the Braves.
