Mets deal blow to Braves' fading playoff hopes

ATLANTA (AP) Even though the New York Mets are out of the playoff picture, Zack Wheeler believes his team is eager to finish strong.

"We aren't done playing," Wheeler said. "Obviously, we can't get first anymore, but we're going for the second spot."

Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, Wheeler pitched six scoreless innings, and the Mets beat the struggling Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Friday night but were eliminated from playoff contention.
