Perez shows promise
Davies roughed up
Kyle Davies was hit hard for the second time in his two starts since coming off the disabled list. The young righty gave up six runs on seven hits and four walks in five-plus innings as the Braves lost both games in New York on Wednesday afternoon. Atlanta got just five hits, two by Marcus Giles.

Series at a glance:
Lefty throws five-hitter
Oliver Perez pitched like the phenom he was in 2004 with the Pirates, striking out six and not walking a batter until there were two outs in the ninth. His five-hit shutout helped the Mets sweep a doubleheader from the Braves. Shawn Green homered in each game and scored four runs on the day.
