ATLANTA — Jason Heyward hit a tiebreaking RBI single to cap a three-run rally and the Atlanta Braves took advantage after the umpires reversed a call, beating the New York Mets 8-7 Saturday for their sixth straight win.
The Braves' comeback prevented R.A. Dickey from getting his 11th win in a row. Bobby Parnell (2-2) gave up RBI singles with two outs in the eighth to Michael Bourn, Martin Prado and Heyward.
Mets manager Terry Collins was ejected while disputing a call in Atlanta's two-run fifth, when Prado was initially called out on an apparent inning-ending double play before umpires conferred and reversed the call.

PHILLIES 8, ROCKIES 5: At Denver, Vance Worley (5-5) pitched into the seventh inning and hit a two-run double, and Carlos Ruiz added a three-run homer for Philadelphia.

PIRATES 6, BREWERS 4: At Milwaukee, Andrew McCutchen hit his fourth homer in the last three games as Pittsburgh remained tied with Cincinnati for the NL Central lead.
PADRES 7, DODGERS 6: At Los Angeles, pinch-runner Everth Cabrera stole home to tie the game with two out in the ninth inning and Will Venable came around with the winning run when closer Kenley Jansen threw the ball away, ending the Padres' 10-game losing streak at Dodger Stadium.
GIANTS 3, ASTROS 2 (12 INNINGS): At San Francisco, Hector Sanchez's RBI single in the 12th inning, his career-best fourth hit of the night, brought home the winning run for the Giants.
ORIOLES 8, TIGERS 6 (13 INNINGS): At Baltimore, Taylor Teagarden, activated off the disabled list, ended his first game with the Orioles by hitting a two-run homer in the 13th to snap Detroit's six-game winning streak.
RAYS 5, RED SOX 3: At St. Petersburg, Fla., David Price (12-4) outpitched Clay Buchholz and Tampa Bay scored twice in the seventh inning without getting a hit to rally past Boston.
ROYALS 6, WHITE SOX 3: At Kansas City, Mo., Alcides Escobar hit a pair of homers off Jake Peavy, the second a go-ahead shot with two outs in the seventh inning, to lift the Royals.
BLUE JAYS 11, INDIANS 9: At Toronto, Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs and the Blue Jays used an eight-run third inning to beat Cleveland.
YANKEES 5, ANGELS 3: At New York, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson each hit two-run homers and four pitchers kept Mark Trumbo in the ballpark, denying him a homer in a record sixth straight game against the Yankees.
ATHLETICS 9, TWINS 3: At Minneapolis, Chris Carter and Yoenis Cespedes each homered and drove in three runs apiece for Oakland.
