Braves Win, but Lose Jason Heyward
The Braves beat the Mets in extra innings Wednesday afternoon in New York, but it was a very costly win as outfielder Jason Heyward got hit by a pitch, and might miss the rest of the regular season.
It happened in the 6th inning... Mets leading 1-0. Jonathon Niese threw a fastball that hit Heyward on the right side of his face. Braves trainer Jeff Porter was quickly on the scene... so were the Mets doctors. Heyward, who never lost consciousness, was taken to a hospital for x-rays, which showed his right jawbone is fractured in two places.

Heyward and Porter stayed behind in New York as the Braves flew to St. Louis for a four-game series that starts Thursday night.
Heyward is expected to be out of the Braves lineup from 4 to 6 weeks... there's only five-and-a-half weeks left in the regular season.
Jordan Schafer went into the game for Heyward. Andrelton Simmons singled him to second, Freddie Freeman got him home with a single to center. That tied the game.
The Braves won it with a two-out rally in the 10th. Simmons and Freeman singled... Chris Johnson won it with a three-run shot over the left field wall.
Craig Kimbrel pitched the bottom of the 10th picking up his 40th save, as the Braves run their major league-leading record to 77-49, staying 15 games ahead of the Nationals in the NL east.By Darrell Patterson
