Glavine's First Spring Start A Success, Braves Thrash Mets

Tom Glavine's first spring start after two off-season surgeries was excellent, and the Braves demolished the Mets 12-1.

Glavine allowed just two hits in three innings of work. Kris Medlen, Peter Moylan and Blaine Boyer each had a scoreless inning of work. Jorge Campillo, in his first appearance since the World Baseball Classic, pitched three innings of relief, giving up three hits and one run.

The Braves teed off on Mets starter John Maine, who gave up six runs on five hits in four innings. Jeff Francoeur led the charge with a 2-3 day, including a double and 3 runs batted in. Josh Anderson had a pinch-hit three-run homer off of reliever Nelson Figueroa in the Braves' five-run eighth. Brandon Jones went 2-4, scored two runs and drove in two runs. Brooks Conrad also had two RBIs, and Kelly Johnson and Freddie Freeman drove in a run each.

The Braves play the Mets again this afternoon.

W - Tom Glavine (1-0)
L - John Maine (0-1)
HR - Josh Anderson (2)
