Eric Young Jr stole three bases and scored four times helping set the table for Daniel Murphy’s 3-RBI night as the Mets grabbed the rubber game in Atlanta 6-4 on Thursday night.

Both Young Jr. and Murphy had three hits apiece in the one- and two-hole, respectively. Murphy also added a stolen base, and so did Curtis Granderson, as the Mets stole five on the night. Young Jr., who didn’t have a steal entering the series, stole five in the three-game set.

Jennry Mejia yielded four runs on six hits over 5.0 innings while striking out seven, and didn’t factor in the decision. He can thank Braves outfielder Justin Upton for that: a game tying solo homer in the second inning and a go-ahead to two-run blast in the third. Upton finished with three hits and three RBI.

Carlos Torres (2-0) K’d three over two scoreless to earn the win – with the help of Juan Lagares RBI-single in the seventh that broke a 4-4 tie.

Jose Valverde worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save.

The Mets (4-5) open a series in Anaheim (4-5) on Friday night at 9:00.
