Atlanta, GA. -- John Smoltz became baseball's first pitcher with
200 wins and 150 saves, recording his 200th win with another
triumph over one of his best friends.
Smoltz beat Tom Glavine with seven shutout innings, and Matt
Diaz homered to lead the Atlanta Braves to a 2-to-1 win over the
New York Mets.
Making his third start of the season against his from Atlanta
teammate, Smoltz (7-2) became the National League's first
seven-game winner.
The 40-year-old Smoltz gave up seven hits without a walk and
struck out five. In back-to-back wins over Boston and the Mets,
Smoltz has thrown 14 scoreless innings while allowing 10 hits and
one walk.
Bob Wickman gave up one unearned run in the ninth but got his
seventh save in nine chances.
