Mets RHP Zack Wheeler completed his second consecutive scoreless outing on Saturday night in the Mets' 3-0 victory over the Braves.
Wheeler allowed just three hits and struck out nine batters while the Mets' offense supported him with three runs before he departed after seven innings.
Wheeler struck out the side in the first inning and carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning before Freddie Freeman broke it up a with one-out hit. Tyler Flowers singled in the fifth and Wheeler worked around a leadoff single by Freeman in the seventh to keep the Braves from scoring.
Wheeler, who walked one batter and threw 104 pitches, saw his ERA dip to 3.89 on the season.
"When they're playing good defense behind you and we're swinging it, I try and go out there and put up some zeroes," Wheeler said. "It's a recipe for a win."
The 28-year-old Wheeler has now completed at least seven innings in six of his last seven starts at Citi Field.
