News
Braves pitcher Jordan Walden was called upon with the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth inning of a 7-5 lead against the Mets Saturday and recorded the final out of the game to pick up his first save of the season.

Walden has proven capable of handling the closer role should Craig Kimbrel ever deal with a long-term injury, and he excelled in a high-pressure situation caused by Kimbrel Saturday. Walden owns a 2.84 ERA and 11:4 K:BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings.

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. He'll get his next start Friday or Saturday against the Reds, depending on how the Braves decide to work the pitching schedule with Mike Minor ready to return.

Braves catcher Evan Gattis delivered a two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to seal a 4-2 win over the Marlins Monday.

Gattis, who was 2 for 4 with a walk in the game, made up for a catcher's interference in the ninth inning by playing the hero one inning later. He has hit .302/.327/.623 with five home runs and nine RBI in 53 at-bats.

News
Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood just can't seem to get any help from his teammates recently. Wood was nearly flawless Tuesday against the Marlins, but still ended up with the loss in a 1-0 final.

Wood limited the Marlins to just one run, coming off a fourth-inning single by Casey McGehee. That was pretty much all the Marlins' offense could manage, as they finished with one run on four hits, while Wood struck out a career-high 11 batters without a strikeout in eight innings of work.

Wood has run into some terrible luck to open the season, this season, and is now just 2-3 with a 1.54 ERA. He will look for his fortune to turn around in his next outing, scheduled for Tuesday against the Marlins.

News
Braves pitcher Julio Teheran allowed just one earned run on five hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out eight Monday but didn't factor into the decision in his team's 4-2 win over the Marlins.

Teheran has had a little trouble finding strikeouts in the early-going despite turning in great numbers otherwise, but he ramped up the punchouts Monday while leaving with a lead that was squandered in the ninth inning. He's cruising with a 1.80 ERA and 21:7 K:BB ratio in 35 innings. Teheran will square off with the Reds Sunday.

News
Braves closer Craig Kimbrel was unable to secure a save in his team's 4-2, 10-inning win over the Marlins Monday, giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk but striking out three batters in the ninth inning.

Kimbrel walked the first batter he faced, watched the second reach on a catcher's interference ruling then gave up a game-tying double to the third. He buckled down after that, striking out the next three batters. Kimbrel's blown save was his first of the season, but it comes on the heels of him giving up two earned runs in his first appearance after missing a week due to injury. He owns a 4.91 ERA and 16:3 K:BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings.

Varvaro (1-0) surrendered two hits in the inning of work but was able to strand the runners. He then watched Evan Gattis deliver a walkoff home run for the win. Varvaro owns a 1.69 ERA and 8:2 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.

News
Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said Wednesday he has been dealing with some dryness in his eyes, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Freeman said he met Tuesday with the team optometrist, who said Freeman has some "abrasions in the whites of his eyes." They are treating the condition with drops and gel Freeman puts in his eyes before he goes to sleep.

Freeman was in the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins. The team has an off-day Thursday.

"Everything is all right -- nothing on the corneas," Freeman said. "I had some little abrasions on the whites of my eyes, and it was dry, so I had to clean my lids out and my tear ducts and get them going again. He said I should be fully healthy by Friday. I’ve got to deal with it a little bit (Wednesday), but I’ll be good."
