Atlanta Braves set 25-man roster for opening day


Gsellman worked a scoreless ninth in Monday's game.

Noah Syndergaard pitched six innings Monday before leaving the New York Mets' season opener with a blister on top of his middle finger.

Reigning AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello (1-0) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings while striking out five.

Syndergaard himself departed after six innings with a blister, as Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News writes. "Everybody's going, 'OK, I guess it's time to really start trying here'". "I think he taught 'em how to be major league pitchers, how to go about things, how to take the good with the bad".

Syndergaard called it "just a little blister" and insisted he's not too anxious.

"This is my first time", Suzuki said. They'll dry it out the next couple days.

For six innings Julio Teheran was brilliant keeping the Mets scoreless and piling up strike outs along the way. NY scored all of their runs in the bottom of the seventh inning of off four Braves relievers.

Asdrubal Cabrera had an RBI single, Curtis Granderson had a sacrifice fly, Jay Bruce drew a bases loaded walk, and Lucas Duda hit a bases clearing double. One out later, Jose Reyes walked and Cabrera singled to center field for his third hit.

Wilmer Flores came into the game as a pinch-runner and was originally called out at a very close play at the plate.


From there, the Mets stayed patient in the batter's box and opened a comfortable lead.

So, at least through one game, Duda's 2017 luck already seems to have taken a turn for the better. The Mets plated all six of their runs against the Braves bullpen in the bottom of the seventh inning. Teheran allowed only four hits and three walks in his six innings to go with six strikeouts. He pitched one inning and struck out one batter. He struck out eight without a walk in seven innings and is 5-0 in seven straight Opening Day starts.

Topped only by the one that came after he left the game, by the release of the tension that had gripped the building in the best imaginable way.

With fans still filing in, Braves pitcher Bartolo Colon received a standing ovation during pregame introductions as he waved and tipped his cap to the crowd.

Hart first signed 42-year-old knuckleballer and former NL Cy Young Award victor R.A. Dickey to a one-year, $7.5 million contract that includes an $8 million option for 2018.

It is never fun to lose on opening day but it is to early to judge the team based on one game.

"It was awesome out there, feeling the electricity of the atmosphere of the fans", he said. "I like being a little nervous", Bruce said. There are valued veterans as well as youngsters that will lead the team somewhere down the road, and the fact that Gonzalez's successor Brian Snitker was retained after going 59-65 to finish the season is a sign of a commitment to stability.

Steven Matz's left arm again flared up with pain, but a MRI showed no significant structural damage. It was his return to action after missing last September and the playoffs with a right elbow injury. The teams will have off Tuesday before getting back on the field Wednesday night. He was in uniform for pregame introductions and was given a warm hand.
