Play Ball! Mets beat Braves in first spring game

By  | 

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Tommy Hanson threw two scoreless
innings for Atlanta, but the New York Mets spoiled the last spring
training opener for Braves manager Bobby Cox with a 4-2 victory

Jason Pridie, Jesus Feliciano and Ruben Tejada each drove in a
run in the fifth inning for New York. The Mets scratched Jose Reyes
and all of their regulars from the lineup when morning showers
drenched the field.

Hanson allowed a leadoff single to Feliciano before retiring six
straight batters. The right-hander went 11-4 with a 2.89 ERA last
year as a rookie.

Cox has said he's going to retire after this season. He had to
enjoy watching top Atlanta prospect Jason Heyward in this year's
major league spring opener. Heyward walked twice and singled.
