Watch Braves reliever Chris Withrow's epic struggle to open the bullpen door
The Atlanta Braves surprisingly had few problems on Friday night against the New York Mets, with the exception of the Citi Field bullpen door.
Called in to protect a 4-1 lead in the seventh inning, reliever Chris Withrow had a little trouble getting to the mound. So, how many Braves relievers does it take to open a bullpen door?
Perhaps that incident should have served as an omen. Withrow didn't retire either batter he faced, allowing a hit and a walk before departing. Hunter Cervenka recorded the final out of the inning without allowing any inherited runners to score, and the Braves held on to win 5-1.
The Braves have won three consecutive games for just the second time all season.
