John Smoltz faced former teammate and longtime friend Tom Glavine and the Mets tonight looking to become the only player in history to have 150 saves and 200 wins. With help from Matt Diaz, who was 2-3 with a homerun, Smoltz was able to hold a two run lead and throw seven shutout innings. Tom Glavine pitched well too, but couldn't get any offense behind him in his outing. Smoltz is now 7-2, improving the Braves record to 28-19, just a game and a half behind the Mets. John Smoltz has become the only player in baseball history to have 150 saves (he has 154), and 200 wins.
