KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Brooks Conrad hit a two-run homer for the Atlanta Braves and Willie Harris connected for the New York Mets as the split-squads played to a 10-inning, 3-3 tie Saturday.

The veteran right-hander threw 93 pitches in 4 2-3 innings, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out five.

Mets starter Pat Misch gave up four hits and three runs in five innings. The left-hander struck out two and walked one. Conrad's homer came with two outs in the fourth inning and Nate McLouth drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth.
