ATLANTA -- John Smoltz is back -- and so is that pesky knot behind his shoulder. Smoltz pitched five scoreless innings, Mark Teixeira hit a two-run homer and the Atlanta Braves beat Johan Santana and the New York Mets, 3-1, on Sunday to complete a two-game sweep of the rain-shortened series. Santana (1-1) gave up only one run in seven innings, but Teixeira's eighth-inning drive against Aaron Heilman gave Atlanta a 3-0 lead.

In his official bio, keyboardist Salvador Santana's family history first mentions his maternal grandfather, blues pioneer Saunders King, then his paternal grandfather, mariachi violinist Jose Santana. Oh, and by the way, his dad is rock legend Carlos Santana.

PHOENIX -- The Angels offered Ervin Santana a slight raise. When he said no, they imposed a pay cut. Santana, who did not pitch in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, went 7-14 with a 5.76 earned-run average last season, and the Angels demoted him to the minor leagues for one month. He is not yet eligible for salary arbitration, meaning the Angels can pay him whatever they like above the $390,000 minimum.

Maybe the Angels can fit Ervin Santana with a pair of 3-D goggles that, when worn on the road, create the optical illusion the right-hander is standing on the mound in Angel Stadium. Or, they could go to a 5 1/2 -man rotation, with Santana starting at home and Dustin Moseley filling his spot on the road.
