NEW YORK—Lucas Duda homered twice and became the first player to take advantage of the pulled-in fences at Citi Field, leading R.A. Dickey and the New York Mets over the Atlanta Braves 4-2 Saturday.

David Wright kept hitting with a homer and two singles as the Mets improved to 2-0 for the first time since 2009. Coming off a down year and injury-interrupted spring training, the All-Star had two hits and drove in the only run in Thursday's opener against Atlanta.

Josh Thole lined a go-ahead single with two outs in the fifth inning off well-traveled Livan Hernandez, making his first regular-season relief appearance since his major league debut in 1996.
