NEW YORK (AP) -- Derrek Lee delivered the huge hit the Braves desperately needed from him, launching a go-ahead grand slam in the seventh inning that sent Atlanta over the New York Mets 6-3 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Lee's full-count, two-out shot into the second deck in left field energized the Braves going into their biggest series of the season.
Leading the wild-card race and trying to catch the Phillies in the NL East, Atlanta opens a three-game set in Philadelphia on Monday night. Jair Jurrjens, Mike Minor and Tommy Hanson will start for the Braves against Phils aces Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt.
The Mets gave retiring Atlanta manager Bobby Cox a magnum bottle of wine from Tom Seaver's vineyard as a farewell gift, then Lee presented him with a key victory.
