Marlins ace Jose Fernandez to face Braves for first time since bench-emptying incident last season

ATLANTA _ Jose Fernandez ended his rookie season with some excitement, thanks to the Atlanta Braves. Fernandez hit a home run in his final at bat of the season, the sixth inning of a 5-2 victory over the Braves. That home run, Fernandez’s ensuing trip around the bases in which he spat in the direction of third base, prompted both benches to empty. A lot of shouting and finger pointing ensued but nothing like the Brewers-Pirates recent melee. Fernandez, who shouted in the direction of the Braves bench the previous innings after objecting to the way Evan Gattis took his time after a home run,...

Rapid Reaction: Braves 7, Mets 5

NEW YORK -- Freddie Freeman is so good against the New York Mets, it hardly matters whether he hits the ball 40 feet or 400. Or whether he hits it off his own foot. The biggest play in the Mets' 7-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Saturday did indeed deflect off Freeman's foot, or so it appeared on television replays. The ball ended up rolling down the third-base line, and when Mets starter Bartolo Colon threw it away down the right-field line, the Braves had two runs and a third-inning lead they would never give up.
