The Braves got plenty of timely hits and scored all of their runs with two outs Tuesday, extending their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 5-4 win against the Mets.

But on a night when Andrelton Simmons had a two-run single in a three-run fourth inning that put the Braves ahead for good, there was one development that likely raised concerns across the South: The continued lackluster performance of Braves pitcher Mike Minor, who didn’t make it out of the fifth inning again and hasn’t won since May 19.

Tommy La Stella was hit in the right foot by a pitch in the second inning and in the eighth inning with what was diagnosed as a bruise. La Stella’s injury wasn’t worrisome. Minor’s ongoing struggles perhaps should be.

Minor lasted 4 1/3 innings and gave up nine hits, four runs on a pair of two-run homers, and had one walk with five strikeouts. The left-hander needed 101 pitches to record 13 outs and got no decision to remain 2-5 for the season and 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA in eight starts since May 19.

After Minor exited, four Braves relievers retired 14 of 15 batters including eight strikeouts. Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth inning to record his 26th save.

Shae Simmons (1-0) relieved Minor with runners on the corners and one out in the fifth and retired the next two batters to protect a 5-4 lead on the way to winning his first major league decision.
