Braves Vs. Mets Score Update: Martin Prado Ties Game With Homer, Jair Jurrjens Struggles

The Atlanta Braves were held scoreless on opening day against the Mets. It took five more innings on Saturday afternoon for the club to score their first runs of the season, but they did so on a two-run homer from Martin Prado. After two quick outs were made by Tyler Pastornicky and Jair Jurrjens, Michael Bourn drew a walk and Prado belted a 2-1 fastball down the left field line.

David Wright hit a monster solo home run in the first inning to give New York an early 1-0 lead. Lucas Duda also hit a deep solo-shot in the fourth.

Midway through the fifth inning, it's now 2-2 with the Mets threatening.

Jurrjens was not sharp for most of the afternoon and his fastball continually sat in the high 80s. He allowed seven hits and three walks in just 4.1 innings, and is on the hook for two more in the fifth. He was pulled for Livan Hernandez after allowing a walk and single.
