The Sports Kings: Braves Blast Santana In 9-3 Win

The Atlanta Braves finally beat the New York Mets, taking advantage of shaky defense to hand Johan Santana the shortest start of his career in a 9-3 victory Tuesday night.

Tyler Pastornicky’s two-run double highlighted a five-run second that finished off Santana. Randall Delgado (2-0) won it for the Braves, who lost their first four games against the Mets this season.

Two costly errors – Jason Bay dropped a fly ball, Ike Davis made a wild throw – led to a pair of unearned runs against Santana (0-2), who allowed just one run in his first two games.

He was lifted after 1 1-3 innings, finished off by Jason Heyward’s run-scoring single that made it 6-0. Santana had never gone less than three innings in his previous 265 starts.
