MLB roundup: Braves win, but Heyward breaks jaw

Chris Johnson hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and Atlanta beat the Mets, 4-1, Wednesday in New York after Braves outfielder Jason Heyward sustained two fractures when he was struck by a pitch in the right jaw. He’ll undergo surgery Thursday.

The Braves said that Heyward’s jaw was stabilized, and he was to return to Atlanta Wednesday night in advance of the operation. The team will announce how long Heyward will be sidelined after surgery is completed.
