PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — David Wright hit a two-run homer and an RBI single in the New York Mets’ 3-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday.

Wright, who was batting just .200 entering the game, drove in a run on a base hit in the fourth inning, then hit a long homer over the left field wall in the sixth inning. It was his first home run of the spring.

Braves starting pitcher Jair Jurrjens gave up three runs — two earned — on five hits with two strikeouts and no walks in six innings. He was perfect through the first three innings, but Jose Reyes reached on an error in the fourth.

Oliver Perez, contending for a lefty specialist role in the Mets’ bullpen, walked one but retired the side in the sixth.
