Mets Take Three From Braves – How Sweep It Is!
GAME ONE: METS 1 – BRAVES 0
In his first start since 2010, Johan Santana hurled five scoreless innings, and after David Wright struck with a go-ahead RBI single in the sixth off Tommy Hanson, the Mets’ bullpen shut the door on the Braves to preserve the Opening Day victory.
GAME TWO: METS 4 – BRAVES 2
Lucas Duda belted a pair of homers to back R.A. Dickey as the Mets defeated the Braves to clinch the opening series victory. David Wright also went deep, and Josh Thole’s two-out RBI single in the fifth inning put the Mets ahead for good.
GAME THREE: METS 7 – BRAVES 5
Fresh off signing an extension, Jon Niese took a no-hitter into the seventh, then settled for a win as Daniel Murphy and Ruben Tejada each notched two-run doubles. Trying to pick up starter Mike Minor, Brian McCann and Jason Heyward led a late Braves rally that came up short.

On June 1, 2012 Johan Santana officially became my favorite current Met! I'm a Queens native who grew up in the shadows of Big Shea. I was a huge Ron Darling, Dave Magadan and John Olerud fan. Honored to be a part of such a great site for Mets fans. Ya Gotta Believe!
