BRAVES 9, METS 5
W - Josh Venters (1-0)
L - Josh Stinson (0-1)
HR - Brandon Hicks (1)
Chipper Jones and Troy Glaus had their first action of the spring as the Braves pulled out a late win by a score of 9-5.
THE GOOD: Jason Heyward had another strong day, going 1-2 with a double, RBI, walk and a run scored. Brandon Hicks hit the Braves' first homer of the spring and Brent Clevlen, a minor free agent signing, had a two-hit game. Tim Hudson tossed two scoreless innings while Peter Moylan and Eric O'Flaherty tossed scoreless frames. 2009 draft pick Mike Minor tossed a perfect inning as well.
THE BAD: Mariano Gomez allowed three hits and one run and Stephen Marek, the prospect obtained with Casey Kotchman in the second Mark Teixeira trade, coughed up three runs on four hits and two walks. Glaus went hitless in his spring debut.
UP NEXT: The Braves host the Pirates at Disney's Wide World of Sports.
