Opening Day Results: Atlanta 5 Philadelphia 3

Where the bullpen has fallen apart in times past became strong today as the Braves beat the Phillies 5-3 in 10 innings. Edgar Renteria blasted 2 HR's and had 3 RBI's including the game winning runs. Brian McCann also went yard earlier in the day off Myers. John Smoltz pitched threw about 100 times giving up 3 runs on 8 hits while striking out 7. Chad Paronto got the save while Wicky picked up the W. These two will square off again Wed.

Good start to the season. And Smoltz looked a lot better than his numbers suggested. Only two of his runs should have been earned, but the home town scorer didn't give Johnson an error when he dropped that flyball.

The bullpen was very, very impressive.
