Spring Opener Not Good For All Involved; Mets Drop Braves
W - Bobby Livingston (1-0)
L - Jesse Chavez (0-1)
S - Ryota Igarashi (1)
HR - Russ Adams (1)
Both teams opened up their Grapefruit League season on a soggy day. The Mets and Braves held off a few of their regular starters for the game. The Mets ended up prevailing 4-2.
THE GOOD: Phenom Jason Heyward had a strong opening game with a single and two walks. He also stole third base. Tommy Hanson and Kris Medlen had two scoreless innings apiece. Each hurler allowed one hit; Hanson struck out three batters and Medlen punched out one.
THE BAD: Jesse Chavez coughed up three runs to open up his spring and Nate McLouth and Yunel Escobar had 0-3 days at the plate.
NEXT UP:The Braves play the Mets again on Wednesday.
