Glavine beats former team, leading Braves past Mets 6-1

ATLANTA (AP) - Tom Glavine retired his last 17 hitters during his first post-New York appearance against the Mets, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 6-1 victory Tuesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Glavine (2-1) gave up a homer to Luis Castillo on the sixth pitch of the game but escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first. He retired the Mets in order over the next five innings, beating the team he pitched for the previous five seasons.

Brian McCann homered and drove in three runs for the Braves, who ended John Maine's four-game winning streak. Maine (5-3) lasted only four-plus innings, giving up four runs and eight hits.
