Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Chris Johnson's three-run shot in the 10th inning, which followed a controversial call, lifted Atlanta to a 4-1 decision over New York in the finale of a two-game series.

Andrelton Simmons roped a base hit with two down against Scott Atchison (3-2) in the deciding drame, and then Freddie Freeman beat out an infield hit near the mound facing Scott Rice -- but replays seemed to indicate he was out by the slimmest of margins. Johnson stepped in and deposited Greg Burke's first offering into the left-field seats for a 4-1 contest.

Both second baseman David Murphy and manager Terry Collins were ejected for arguing the Freeman play.

Craig Kimbrel tossed a scoreless bottom of the 10th for his 30th save, while Luis Avilan (5-0) remained perfect with an unblemished ninth.

Freeman finished with three hits and knocked in the other run for the Braves, who earned a split in the set and have won five of seven overall.

Josh Satin's fourth-inning homer was all the offense for the Mets, who have dropped six of their last 10.
