News and notes...
The Mets won their second straight overall and seventh in 10 games at SunTrust Park. They improved to 18-6 in their last 24 visits to Atlanta dating back to 2015.
All of New York's remaining games are against the National League East. They are 32-31 against divisional opponents in 2017.
Reyes' triple was his 470th extra-base hit as a Met, moving him past Darryl Strawberry into second place on the club's all-time list. David Wright (658) is the franchise leader.
Cabrera is 20-for-38 (.526) with eight doubles, two homers, eight RBIs and seven runs scored during his hitting streak. He's batting .449 (22-for-39) in September.
Gsellman (7-7) completed seven innings for the third time this season and for the first time since May 29 against the Brewers. The 24-year-old posted a 2.41 ERA and won all three starts against Atlanta at SunTrust Park.
The Mets (65-84) open up a three-game series with the Marlins (69-80) on Monday night at 7 p.m. on SNY in the first game at Marlins Park since Hurricane Irma hit Florida last week.
Matt Harvey (5-5, 6.14 ERA, 1.57 WHIP) toes the rubber in the opener coming off another poor start his last time out against the Cubs. The 28-year-old allowed 11 baserunners in 3 1/3 innings and was charged with five runs during a 17-5 loss on Wednesday. Harvey surrendered one earned run over seven innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on April 16.

Straily has recorded no-decisions in both starts against the Mets this season despite allowing two runs on five hits over 10 1/3 innings.
