Toussaint shines in relief as Braves hold off Mets

Touki Toussaint earned the win by tossing six solid innings of one-run relief in his season debut Saturday night as the host Atlanta Braves scored four runs apiece in the first and second innings of an 11-7 victory over the New York Mets.

The Braves, who lost the first two games of the four-game series, have won four of six. The Mets had a three-game winning streak snapped despite scoring at least six runs for a team-record seventh straight game.

Both starters were chased early Saturday. Mets left-hander Jason Vargas recorded just one out in the first inning and Braves southpaw Sean Newcomb exited after 1 1/3 innings.

Wondering what it says that hearing “six innings of relief” makes one think “the team uses an opener”, rather than “starting pitcher knocked out quickly”.
