NEW YORK -- The most comforting sight for New York Mets pitchers is Juan Lagares galloping around the outfield. Wholesale Canucks Jerseys . Lagares hit a two-run homer and ran down one ball after another in centre, sending Dillon Gee and the Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Gee stopped the longest losing streak of his career at five games, outpitching Alex Wood in the opener of a three-game series. Lagares, one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball, scurried from gap to gap and finished with seven putouts. "Thats Lagares, man," Gee said. "We expect that from him now. Unbelievable centre fielder. Makes great plays. ... Id be hard-pressed to find anybody better. Hes unbelievable. Hes fun to watch." One of Lagares grabs was spectacular -- he robbed Wood of a base hit with a diving, tumbling grab in shallow centre to end the third inning. Lagares also began the game by running a long way to track down consecutive fly balls, and he made all three putouts in the sixth. "Ill tell you what: Everybodys impressed -- Im not. Ive been playing with him since 09. I know what he can do," New York infielder Wilmer Flores said. "Any pitcher would want him in centre field." With the Mets minus ailing David Wright and Daniel Murphy, it was Lagares who carried the load on this night. So he was asked if he was happier about his performance at the plate or in the field? "I think I liked both," Lagares said with a grin. Right in the thick of a crowded NL wild-card race, the Braves have totalled only five runs while dropping three straight after a 7-1 stretch. Streaking slugger Justin Upton went 3 for 3 with an RBI double and a walk. "Hes really swinging the bat really well. Weve got to get some people on in front of him," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Backed by three double plays, a clean-shaven Gee (5-6) gave up two runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings. He entered 0-5 with a 5.71 ERA in seven starts since beating the Braves 4-1 on July 9 in his first outing after nearly two months on the disabled list with a strained right lat. New York turned four double plays in all. "It just killed us, really," Gonzalez said. Gee was lifted after Tommy La Stellas run-scoring single made it 3-2. Jeurys Familia got four outs, and Jenrry Mejia pitched a one-hit ninth for his 19th save in 22 tries. Mejia leaped off the mound with both arms raised after throwing a called third strike past Evan Gattis to end it. Wood (9-10) retired his final 12 batters after Lagares homer in the fourth. The left-hander struck out six and walked one in seven innings. He yielded two earned runs or fewer in each of his previous five starts. Ruben Tejada hit an RBI single in the second, two batters after Lagares singled. Atlanta tied it on consecutive doubles by Freddie Freeman and Upton with two outs in the fourth. Travis dArnaud doubled to open the bottom half and Lagares drove Woods full-count changeup to left field for his fourth home run -- his second in three games after going more than three months without one. "It was just a really bad pitch to that guy," Wood said. TRAINERS ROOM Braves: RHP Cory Gearrin is ready to begin a throwing program in his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery in April. Mets: Wright left Sundays 11-3 win at Dodger Stadium with a muscle spasm on the right side of his neck that he said is getting better. Murphy, who leads the NL in hits, was removed late in that game due to tightness in his right calf and said hes day to day. He expected to be examined by a doctor Tuesday evening. Mets manager Terry Collins said hes not sure how long either player will be out. ... RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka (elbow inflammation) is scheduled to make another rehab start Thursday for Class A Brooklyn, Collins said. FILLING IN Eric Campbell replaced Wright at third base and batted third. Flores shifted over from shortstop to Murphys spot at second. Campbell and Flores combined on a pair of 5-4-3 double plays, including one in the ninth. BAT MEN New York has totalled 12 homers while going deep in seven consecutive games, its longest streak since a seven-game power surge in September 2012. UP NEXT All-Star RHP Julio Teheran (12-9, 2.96 ERA) pitches Wednesday night for Atlanta against RHP Zack Wheeler (9-8, 3.48 ERA), who has won six straight decisions. Wheeler is 3-1 with a 3.50 ERA in six career starts against the Braves, his hometown team. Cheap Vancouver Canucks Jerseys . The Braves optioned outfielder Jose Constanza to Triple-A Gwinnett.

"I had great runs today and I knew it was going to be a long shot,"the 26-year-old slider from Calgary said. "It was tough to make a mistake on the first run, I knew I was going to have to fight back from that." Germanys Natalie Geisenberger captured gold with a combined time of 3:19.768, while defending Olympic champion Tatjana Hüfner finished with a silver medal, 1.139 seconds behind her German teammate.

Arianne Jones, also of Calgary, finished with a time of 3:23.183 for 13th place.
