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.
