ATLANTA (AP) - Ervin Santana allowed only three hits over eight scoreless innings in his Atlanta debut, Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs and the Braves held off the New York Mets 4-3 on Wednesday night.

The Braves led 4-0, but the Mets rallied in the ninth after Santana was removed.

Jordan Walden walked Eric Young Jr. and gave up a one-out single to David Wright. Craig Kimbrel walked Curtis Granderson to load the bases before striking out Lucas Duda. Juan Lagares drove in two runs with a single, and Travis d'Arnaud added a run-scoring single before Kimbrel fanned Ruben Tejada for his fourth save.

Santana (1-0) finished with six strikeouts and no walks.

Georgia native Zack Wheeler (0-2) allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings for the Mets.
