FLUSHING, Queens — Francisco Lindor, James McCann and Jonathan Villar hit three of the Mets’ season-high five homers, Taijuan Walker pitched five scoreless innings in his return from the injured list and New York routed Atlanta 13-2 as word spread that Braves star Marcell Ozuna had been arrested.

Ozuna was charged with aggravated assault strangulation and misdemeanor battery/family violence, according to Fulton County Jail records in Georgia.

The 30-year-old was booked Saturday by the Sandy Springs Police Department, and an apparent photo of his arrest was posted by a user on Twitter.

Brandon Drury and Billy McKinney piled on with homers during the Mets’ seven-run sixth inning.

The Mets and Braves will attempt to wrap up their now abbreviated series Sunday evening.
