Tommy Hanson’s first opening day on April 5, 2012 start was pretty good. Unfortunately Johan Santana, the Mets starter, did better as the Braves lost 1-0.
Santana was making his first start since September 2010 and as usual, he was stingy, allowing only one hit through the first four innings. The Braves threatened to score in the fifth, loading the bases on a double and two walks, but Santana escaped. They also put two on base in the sixth, but again failed to score.
The Braves were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.
That pretty much sums it up for the day. Great pitching, no hitting.
