From the CBSSportsline play-by-play of the first inning tonight (in reverse order):

Phillips singled hard to right. Cameron homered hard to deep left center. Piazza homered hard to deep left center, Floyd scored. Floyd singled hard to right.

As opposed to soft home runs?

Looks like another good first inning, anyway. Could be a long year in Atlanta.

UPDATE: 6-0 entering the bottom of the third. I'm starting to feel pretty good about the Mets' offense, if they can keep them all healthy (with Jose Reyes on the DL, we're not there yet). Score one for the incurable optimists.

FOURTH INNING UPDATE: Not feeling so good about the pitching staff. Traschel blew the whole 6-run lead. Grant Roberts is in. Bases loaded, nobody out.

UPDATE: 11-run inning for the Braves. Long night for all concerned.

UPDATE: Piazza cracks his third home run in two days. Of course, it's still 14-7 Braves.

FINAL UPDATE: Braves win 18-10. Piazza has an even better game than Matsui did yesterday, and is now just one homer shy of Carlton Fisk's career record for catchers.

If you're a Braves fan, it's hard to watch.
