ATLANTA -- Eric Young Jr. Blake Griffin Jersey . is proving hes an important part of the Mets winning formula. Thats especially important with New Yorks outfield about to become more crowded. Young got three hits, stole three bases and scored four times as the Mets overcame Justin Uptons two home runs to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-4 on Thursday night. Young stole five bases in the series as the Mets won two of three from Atlanta. "Hes such a great kid, you root for him all the time, and tonight he showed you he can win games for you," manager Terry Collins said. Young has joined Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares in the Mets outfield. Chris Young could be moving closer to making his return from the disabled list with a right quadriceps injury. Soon Collins could face difficult decisions in the outfield. "No question about it," Collins said, adding that Eric Young "makes things happen." "We saw it tonight," Collins said. "The guy creates runs." "We talked about it all spring and all winter, what Eric Young brings to the table. When he gets on base he scores runs. He showed it again tonight." Young had two steals in the Mets 4-0 win on Tuesday night. "Anytime you do your job at the top of the lineup, especially with a couple of guys behind me driving me in, its a lot of fun," Young said. The Mets broke a 4-all tie in the seventh. Luis Avilan (1-1) gave up a leadoff single to Daniel Murphy, who scored on a two-out single by Juan Lagares off Gus Schlosser. Murphy drove in three runs with three hits. Carlos Torres (2-0) allowed only one hit in two scoreless innings. Jose Valverde pitched a perfect ninth for his second save. Led by Young, the Mets stole five bases, their highest total since May 28, 2011, against Philadelphia. Young also used his speed to lead off a two-run third inning with a bunt single. "Young scored four runs by himself," said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, who added, "that pretty much beat us." Upton drove in three runs with three hits. He had no homers before his breakout game. He hit an opposite-field homer in the second inning before his long two-run blast to left field in the third. "Tonight I was just comfortable," Upton said. "The only thing I can do is try to take that same exact feel to tomorrow night and the next day and try to make something of it." Older brother B.J. Upton hit a triple after receiving pregame batting tips from former Braves star Chipper Jones. Justin Uptons second homer gave the Braves a 4-3 lead. Mets starter Jenrry Mejia, obviously frustrated, slapped his mitt and then appeared to throw the glove to the grass. "I just threw my hand up and the glove went out of my hand," he said. Mejia gave up four runs in five innings on six hits and four walks. Atlantas David Hale also had control problems as he gave up four runs, three earned, in 4 1-3 innings on five hits and five walks. The Mets tied the game in the fifth on a leadoff triple by Young and Murphys single. The Mets loaded the bases on two walks by Hale, but reliever Anthony Varvaro struck out Lagares and ended the inning on Travis dArnauds groundout. Ike Davis was 0 for 3 with two walks and a RBI in his start at first base. Collins said Lucas Duda, who had a pinch-hit single in the eighth, is still the starter. Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons was held out with a jammed right wrist. He said he hurt the wrist in a home-plate collision in Wednesday nights game. He is day to day. Ramiro Pena, making his first start of the season, replaced Simmons and had one hit. NOTES: Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, sat near the Braves dugout. ...

He scored the game-winner with 4:45 remaining in the third period, stopping on the right hashmarks, carrying the puck up through the top of the Kings zone, then firing a wrist shot from the top of the circles past Jonathan Quick, who had his view obstructed by Andrew Shaw.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nolan Ryan is leaving the Texas Rangers again, stepping away from his CEO role 20 years after ending his Hall of Fame career as a pitcher. In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month. He is also selling his ownership stake in the team to co-chairmen Ray Davis and Bob Simpson. "It closes a chapter of my life in baseball," Ryan said. "I feel like its time for me to move on to other things. Its been a decision that weighed on me heavily, but I feel like its the right decision. ... At this point and time, its the correct thing for me to do." Asked about the difference in the team announcing that he was retiring and him calling it a resignation, the 66-year-old Ryan paused and then said he wouldnt be the CEO of another major league team and called this perhaps the "final chapter" of his storied career in baseball. Ryans older son, Reid, became president of the Houston Astros earlier this year. Nolan Ryan dismissed any speculation that hes leaving the Rangers to join his son and another of the teams he pitched for and worked for in the past. The move takes effect Oct. 31. Ryan became the 10th president of the Rangers in February 2008 when he was hired by former owner Tom Hicks. Ryan added the title of CEO three years later. He was also part of the ownership group that acquired the team in August 2010, months before its first World Series. Ryans departure comes less than a year after ownership gave general manager Jon Daniels and chief operating officer Rick George new presidential titles and took the presidents title from Ryan. Davis insisted the change in Ryans title earlier this year was just that. "From a corporation standpoint, Nolans authority didnt change at all," Davis said. "On all major decisions on baseball, Nolan made all final decisions." Ryan said the title change wasnt a factor in his decision. "I dont look at it from that perspective," Ryan said. "I just look at it from where I am in life and what I want to do going forward and thats what really drove my decision." George left in July to become the athletic director at the University of Colorado. Daniels attended the news conference at Rangers Ballpark, but left without speaking to reporters. Davis said the ownership group is disappointed with Ryans decision but understands it. Simpson said he tried to talk Ryan out of leaving. Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys. "You dont wake up one day and make a decision of this magnitude," Ryan said. "It was something Ive been thinking about on and off for a while now. Just felt like it was probably time for me to move on." Ryan said he planned to go home and enjoy getting back out to his ranch "and doing things I havent done for six years now. ... I dont know what a year from now might bring. This may be the final chapter of my baseball career." Texas made its only two World Series appearances during Ryans six seasons in the front office. The Rangers have averaged more than 90 wins the past five seasons, though they missed the playoffs this year after losing an AL wild-card tiebreaker game to Tampa Bay. "During times of significant change for the franchise, Nolan has been a constant -- accessible, dedicated and an icon to his fellow Texans who love our game," Commissioner Bud Selig said. "Nolans unique perspective as a legendary player and an accomplished executive has been invaluable to the Rangers franchise." Ryans name has been synonymous with the Rangers for decades. The major league strikeout king with 5,714 spent the last five seasons of his playing days in a Rangers uniform, getting his 300th victory, throwing the last two of his record seven no-hitters and getting his 5,000th strikeout. He retired as player after the 1993 season. His No. 34 jersey is the only one worn by a Rangers player to be retired, and there is a statue of the pitcher at Rangers Ballpark. He is the only player in the Hall of Fame whose bust is topped by a Texas cap. "As his son, I am extremely proud of what he has accomplished as both a player and as a front office executive. He was an integral part of all three of the World Series appearances by Texas teams, in 2005 with the Astros and in 2010-11 with the Rangers," Reid Ryan said in a statement. "He has always treated the game with dignity and respect and has appreciated those that make our game great: the fans, players and employees," he said. The co-chairmen said there are no immediate plans to announce a new CEO. Rob Matwick, whos currently executive vice-president of ballpark and event operations, will take on more responsibilities with the help of others who have also been shifted into new roles. As for representing the Rangers in MLB business, Davis said hed "be the control person for the next two or three years, and Bob and I will rotate that title."
