ATLANTA -- Braves outfielder Andruw Jones became the 11th player in NL history to homer in four straight at-bats Tuesday night, though the streak began three days earlier.

Jones hit two homers off the Mets' Pedro Astacio before hitting a two-run single in the fifth.

Saturday, Jones homered in his first two at-bats against Montreal, then was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Tomo Ohka.

Jones left and sat out Sunday because of puffiness in his face. The Braves were off Monday.
