The Mets scratched out a run in the first inning then were held scoreless by Santana for the next six innings before he was removed.

News
Braves catcher Evan Gattis was not listed in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Phillies. 

Gattis was replaced behind the plate by Gerald Laird. It's likely just a normal day of rest for Gattis. The club probably doesn't want to start the catcher during a day game after the team played Wednesday night.

Gattis is hitting .378/.378/.757 in 37 at-bats.

News
Braves left-hander Alex Wood played the role of hard-luck loser in a fine complete-game performance Thursday in Philadelphia.

Wood matched shutout innings with A.J. Burnett until yielding an RBI single to Ben Revere with two out in the eighth. He surrendered eight hits, walked none and fanned seven in lowering his ERA to 1.89. His lone walk kept the eighth inning alive.

He will get a chance to improve his 2-2 record in a Tuesday showdown against Miami stud Jose Fernandez.

News
Braves starter Aaron Harang continued his unlikely run of dominance to open the season Friday, flirting with a no-hitter in a 6-0 win over the Mets.

Harang tossed seven no-hit innings top start the game, and it was only a high pitch count that kept him from attempting to finish the job. He was pulled from the game after throwing 121 pitches, with six walks playing a large part in his inefficiency.

Harang struck out five en route to the win, his third in four starts. He has an 0.70 ERA through 25 2/3 innings of work, and will try to keep his solid play up in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the Marlins.

Braves pitcher Julio Teheran delivered a complete-game shutout in his team's 1-0 win over the Phillies Wednesday, giving up just three hits in nine innings while striking out four and walking none.

Teheran (2-1) gave up a one-out single in the ninth inning, and the runner stole second during a 3-0 count with two outs, but the Braves pitcher was able to induce a ground ball for the final out. He threw 75 strikes and 115 pitches in the gem. Teheran owns a 1.93 ERA and 13:6 K:BB ratio in 28 innings. He'll face the Marlins Monday in his next start.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said closer Craig Kimbrel will be available Sunday against the Mets after struggling in his first appearance Saturday since returning from a shoulder injury. However, Kimbrel's shoulder injury was not the reason for his struggles Saturday.

Kimbrel was removed from Saturday's game after loading the bases during a save situation. He was charged with two runs on three hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning.

News
Gavin Floyd or David Hale could be the odd man out when all shakes out for the sizzling Braves starting rotation, which boasts a major-league best 1.47 ERA this season.

The surprising start by Aaron Harang could result in Floyd not landing a starting spot when he completes his rehab from Tommy John surgery, MLB.com has speculated. Floyd gave up four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab appearancce Friday for Double-A Mississippi. He will likely require at least two more rehab starts before he is ready to return.

Hale owns a 2.89 ERA in two starts for the Braves, but might be the most likely to be on the outside looking in once Floyd returns.
