ESPN Stats & Information provides this summary of the Mets' rain-shortened 1-0 win and sweep against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night, which lasted one pitch into the sixth inning:

Mike Pelfrey wins, is 4-0 with an 0.69 ERA (matching Nolan Ryan, 1970, for best March/April ERA in Mets history). He's deprived of a complete game because reliever Raul Valdes threw one pitch in the top of the sixth inning before the game was called. The Mets have won six of seven, and have recorded at least one sweep of the Braves in four of last five seasons. The Braves made two errors, giving them seven in the series -- the most they've ever had in a three-game series against the Mets. Chipper Jones was 0-for-2 with an error and went 1-for-7 in the series. It's the third Mets rain-shortened shutout in the last four years, but first since 2007. David Wright extended his career-high streak of games with a strikeout to 12.
