Johan Santana was clearly off his game on Tuesday night, surrendering six runs, four earned, in the shortest start of his career, 1 1/3 innings as the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets for the first time in five tries, 9-3 at Turner Field.

Santana allowed just four hits and walked one, but was especially hurt by two fielding errors – Michael Bourne’s lead-off pop fly to left that bounced in and out of the glove of Jason Bay, and an Ike Davis misfire to third base on an attempted sacrifice bunt by pitcher Randall Delgado, which allowed a run to score.

Bourne later scored on a sac-fly from Chipper Jones, and Delgado also came around on a Jason Heyward RBI single.

Delgado improved to 2-0 with 5 1/3 innings of seven-hit, three-run ball. He also struck out five.

Atlanta (6-5) got 2-RBI’s each from Matt Diaz and Freddy Freeman.

New York (7-4) got an RBI each from Daniel Murphy, Josh Thole and a Mike Baxter.

Wednesday afternoon’s series finale features R.A. Dickey (2-0) against Jair Jurrjens (1-1).
