Yoenis Cespedes’ clutch hit in 12th propels Mets past Braves.

ATLANTA — After four straight strikeouts, Yoenis Cespedes was due to make contact Friday night. Instead of thinking big, the slumping outfielder merely slapped a single through the right side, bringing in the go-ahead run in the Mets’ 5-3 victory over the Braves in 12 innings at SunTrust Park.

Instead of thinking big, the slumping outfielder merely slapped a single through the right side, bringing in the go-ahead run in the Mets’ 5-3 victory over the Braves in 12 innings at SunTrust Park.

Robert Gsellman earned the win with two scoreless innings in relief, but the right-hander also played a key role in the go-ahead rally by getting hit with a pitch as the leadoff batter in the 12th inning. Gsellman raced home from second on Cespedes’ single, and Asdrubal Cabrera’s RBI double gave the Mets a cushion.

The Mets (14-5) won for the second time in three games, overcoming a costly defensive blunder by Jay Bruce and missed opportunities on the bases with Wilmer Flores.

Cespedes, who entered 3-for-30 (.100) on the road this season, had walked in his first plate appearance Friday, then struck out four times before delivering against Josh Ravin in the 12th.

Tomas Nido became the first Mets catcher this season to throw out a base stealer when he nailed Ryan Flaherty attempting to swipe second in the seventh. Mets catchers were 0-for-21 to that point (but credited with two throw-outs that were actually pickoffs). Nido repeated his magic in the eighth, throwing out Ozzie Albies attempting to steal second after Seth Lugo had walked the leadoff hitter for a second straight inning.

Noah Syndergaard lasted six innings and allowed three earned runs on seven hits with six strikeouts. The right-hander was removed after 103 pitches in a tie game. It marked the third time in five starts Syndergaard lasted six innings, but he has yet to pitch beyond that point this season.

Syndergaard unleashed a wild pitch in the sixth that helped the Braves tie it 3-3. Nick Markakis doubled to lead off the inning and reached third with nobody out when Syndergaard planted a sinker in the dirt that Nido couldn’t handle. Kurt Suzuki’s sacrifice fly brought in the run.

Flores was thrown out at the plate to end the sixth, negating a bloop double to left for Jay Bruce, who snapped an 0-for-19 drought. Flores, running from first base, was hit with as wipe tag by catcher Suzuki as he slid headfirst into the plate.

Bruce’s defensive miscue in the fourth helped the Braves pull within 3-2. Flaherty hit a line drive to right on which Bruce started in then froze as the ball sailed over his head for an RBI double. Dansby Swanson, who had delivered a two-out single, scored on the play.

Flores’ RBI single in the top of the inning gave the Mets a 3-1 lead. Todd Frazier walked and stole second to begin the rally before Flores singled and was thrown out trying to extend the hit into a double.

Amed Rosario stroked an RBI double in the third that delivered the Mets’ first run. Michael Conforto’s sacrifice fly gave the Mets a 2-1 lead. Nido singled to leading off the inning — a rare hit by a Mets catcher — to start the rally.

Albies homered on a 100-mph fastball from Syndergaard in the first inning to get the Braves their initial run.

Braves lefty Sean Newcomb lasted six innings and allowed three runs, two of which were earned, on six hits and three walks.
