Kris Medlen pitched seven strong innings while Andrelton Simmons and Evan Gattis homered to help the Atlanta Braves win their second straight game with a 3-1 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.
Collins says Duda will primarily be a backup to first baseman Ike Davis and can serve as the designated hitter.

The Mets have lost three games in a row for the first time since the middle of June as they head to Miami to take on the Marlins.
In a skit on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” the Mets’ ace took to the New York streets to interview Mets fans and native New Yorkers about himself … Matt Harvey.
Duda has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained muscle between his ribs.
Duda felt discomfort following New York’s 4-3 win over Philadelphia on Friday night.
If Wheeler turns into an equivalent mound presence as Harvey this year, all well and good. He might even become the second part of a 1-1A entry. But there’s no need to pressure Wheeler into becoming a savior. The Mets already have one.
“I wish that some of our better players were closer to the big leagues,” Alderson said. “I wish that certain guys were available to us, but they’re not, and nobody really cares. It’s all about whether you win or lose games, and I understand that.”
Sweep the Yanks four games home and home and then get swept in three by the horrendous, last-place, worst-team-in-baseball Marlins. Kind of makes it seem that the silly Subway Series was played in 1948 and not last week, doesn’t it?
Harvey battled through five innings allowing season-highs in hits and runs in his shortest start of the season.
David Wright and Lucas Duda hit RBI singles off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning, and the New York Mets rallied past the Yankees 2-1 on Tuesday night to beat baseball’s career saves leader only hours after honoring him at Citi Field.
Ike Davis will probably be sent down to Triple-A, but there are plenty of culprits to share the blame.
“I don’t know what to say,” Gee said. “I didn’t feel all that bad tonight. I’m a ground-ball guy and I think seven ground balls got through. I don’t know what else to do.”
For a split second, Lucas Duda’s sharp grounder looked as if it was going to lift the Mets out of their doldrums. An unfortunate bounce later, New York was headed toward another loss in a season in which they are rapidly mounting.
