Atlanta Braves set 25-man roster for opening day

The New York Mets started the season off right and the Atlanta Braves didn't.

Cabrera led the Mets offense with three hits, including the game-winning single.

Freddie Freeman hit a standup triple with one out in the top of the fourth, but Matt Kemp chased a couple of bad balls to strikeout, then Nick Markakis followed with a strikeout to end the inning.

Every slot in the Los Angeles lineup accounting for a hit and a run.

Opening Day on Monday was a real treat, with a batch of good games to watch live during the British evening.

Hansel Robles (1-0) earned the win with a flawless seventh inning.

MINNEAPOLIS - Miguel Sano homered and drew the third bases-loaded walk during a awful seventh inning for Kansas City's bullpen, as Ervin Santana and the Twins beat the Royals 7-1 on Monday for their first opening victory in nine years.

Bryce Harper also homered while Daniel Murphy added an RBI single.

CINCINNATI - Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez homered as Philadelphia edged Cincinnati.

Reigning AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello (1-0) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings while striking out five. Scott Feldman started for the Reds and allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings. After Freddie Freeman legged out a one-out triple in the fourth inning, Syndergaard struck out Matt Kemp on a 90 miles per hour changeup and Nick Markakis on a 94 miles per hour slider. A hit by Rene Rivera, a pinch-runner and a pinch-hitter, a fielder's choice and a walk set up the first pivotal situation, when Asdrubel Cabrera came to the plate with one out and Wilmer Flores on second.

Mike Moustakas homered for the Royals. The 24-year-old dominated right-handers, holding them to a.228 average and a.581 OPS while giving up only five homers in 416 plate appearances.

Dustin Pedroia and Pablo Sandoval each had an RBIs, and Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth for Boston.

Relievers Ian Krol, Chaz Role and Eric O'Flaherty issued five walks in the seventh inning including three by O'Flaherty, who walked Neil Walker to load the bases and walked Jay Bruce to bring in the third run of the inning. Josh Harrison, Jordy Mercer and Starling Marte drove in runs for the Pirates. "We wish him the best and that those two weeks go by fast because we really need him here". Syndergaard was removed after the sixth inning because of a blister on the middle finger on his right hand. And when he got here, that's what made him so successful. Machado then threw him out from his knees. Wright started the previous 12 season openers at third base. He was 7-10 with a 3.21 ERA overall past year. Sabermetric stats love Syndergaard - he led all pitchers with a 2.29 FIP past year and tied Clayton Kershaw for the Major League Baseball lead with 6.5 WAR. The first reloaded the bases, the second pushed across a run (3-0 NYM).

CHICAGO - The season opener between Detroit and Chicago was postponed due to rain and rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon. "That's the reason he's starting opening day, he's one of the best pitchers in the game and he worked his way out of trouble".
