Chris Johnson hit a two-out three-run home run in the top of the 10th after a controversial call at first as the Braves beat the Mets 4-1 at Citi Field Wednesday.

Just after first base umpire Jerry Layne ruled Freddie Freeman had beaten out the throw on a come-backer that got past reliever Scott Rice Johnson homered on the very first pitched offered by side-arm reliever Greg Burke. The replays showed that in fact Rice who had to go behind the mound to get the ball had beaten Freeman with the throw to Josh Satin.

Second baseman Daniel Murphy and Terry Collins were ejected by Layne Murphy for apparently continuing to argue the call and Collins for coming back out to argue after the home run.

The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the Mets (58-66) and dropped them to 7-10 in extra-inning games but the win may ultimately be more costly to the National League East-leading Braves who lost Jason Heyward after taking a pitch to the right jaw in the sixth inning. He was able to walk off the field with help and after being initially examined by Mets doctors he was transferred to a hospital for X-Rays. No further update was given by the team.
