Rookie Tyler Pastornicky belted a two-run double to highlight a five-run second inning and Freddie Freeman also drove in a pair of runs as the host Atlanta Braves posted a 9-3 win over the New York Mets on Tuesday.
The victory was Atlanta's first in five tries versus New York this season.
Freeman capped an 11-pitch at-bat with an RBI double and Pastornicky scored after advancing on first baseman Ike Davis' error during the second inning. Jason Heyward's RBI single brought about the earliest exit in the career of Johan Santana (0-2), who yielded six runs on four hits in 1 1/3 innings.
Staked to an offensive outburst, Randall Delgado (2-0) allowed three runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.
Kris Medlen yielded just one hit and struck out four in 2 2/3 scoreless innings to bridge the gap to Eric O'Flaherty, who retired the side in the ninth.
