Mets Vs. Braves Final Score: Johan Santana Lit Up In 9-3 Loss

Johan Santana gave up six runs in just 1 1/3 innings of work, as the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 9-3 on Tuesday night. The start was the shortest of Santana's career, and included a five-run second inning by the Braves. Not that the veteran was entirely to blame. Two of those runs were unearned, coming off a Jason Bay dropped fly ball and a wild throw by Ike Davis.

The Mets finally got on the board with a two-run fourth inning. Josh Thole batted in Bay on a single against Randall Delgado. Later in the inning, Mike Baxter singled to send Thole home. Delgado put two men on base in the sixth before being relieved by Kris Medlen. Daniel Murphy then reached on an infield single to third to send Kirk Nieuwenhuis in for the score.

Ramon Ramirez gave up two runs and two hits, and Manny Acosta gave up one run and three hits in relief for the Mets.
