ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Wisler pitched like he was making a bid to stay in Atlanta for longer than just a fill-in start.

Matt Harvey pitched like he is in danger of losing his spot in the New York Mets’ rotation.

Preston Tucker drove in a career-high five runs, Wisler allowed two hits in seven innings after being called up from the minors, and the Braves beat Harvey and the Mets 12-4 on Thursday night.

Wisler (1-0) was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett after Anibal Sanchez, the scheduled starter, strained his hamstring and was placed on the disabled list. Wisler impressed by allowing only one run on two hits with no walks. READ MORE>
