ATLANTA (AP) – Ender Inciarte drove in three runs with three hits, R.A. Dickey’s floaters were more effective than Matt Harvey’s fastballs for the second time in a week and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 9-7 on Tuesday night.

New York’s Jay Bruce drove in six runs with two homers, including a grand slam off Matt Wisler in the ninth.

Dickey (3-2) struggled to control his knuckleball but allowed only three runs and four hits in six innings. He had four walks. He also started in a 7-5 win over Harvey and the Mets in New York on Thursday.

Harvey (2-2) allowed six runs for the second straight start. Harvey allowed eight hits with three walks in 5 1/3 innings.

Dickey’s bases-loaded groundout in the fourth broke a 3-3 tie. Inciarte’s bloop single up the middle drove in two runs.
