After two straight days of rain, the Atlanta Braves got their money's worth on Saturday playing the New York Mets to a 3-3 tie in 10 innings.

Bud Norris came into Saturday's game needing a good start and he delivered on that for the most part. Norris breezed through the first four innings before running into some trouble in the fifth where he allowed a pair of runs. Norris allowed four hits and two runs in six innings of work to go along with five strikeouts and three walks.

Jim Johnson, Jose Ramirez and Jason Hursh all tossed a scoreless inning of relief. Carlos Torres entered the ninth with a chance to nail down the victory but walked three in the inning with the Mets tying the game on an RBI groundout by Johnny Monell.

Michael Bourn didn't enter the game until the sixth but finished with two hits including a triple. Ender Inciarte went 1 for 2 with an RBI to raise his spring average to .372.

The Braves are back at it on Sunday when they take on the Washington Nationals with Jhoulys Chacin scheduled to take the mound.
