June 15, 2005
The Braves swept this doubleheader. In game one, J.C. Martin gave the Mets a 2-0 lead in the third with a bases loaded single that scored Cleon Jones and Art Shamsky.
With the Mets clinging to a 2-1 lead in the eighth and Nolan Ryan working on a four hitter, Nolan's control troubles bit him again. He walked Sonny Jackson leading off the eighth. Then after retiring Henry Aaron he walked Tito Francona. Felipe Alou, who had homered earlier for the Braves' first run, singled to tie the score. Then after Ron Taylor came in from the bullpen, Felix Millan singled to give Atlanta a 3-2 lead.
Ron Reed closed strong to get the win and improve to 5-0. He allowed just two baserunners (both on walks) after the third inning.
