Bradenton's Tyler Pastornicky, an IMG Academy alum, picked up his first major league hit Thursday when he tripled in the seventh inning for the Atlanta Braves off Ramon Ramirez of the New York Mets. The Mets won the game, 1-0.

Pastornicky, a shortstop, grounded out and walked in his two previous plate appearances against New York Mets' starter Johan Santana at Citi Field.

Pastornicky hit the triple over New York center fielder Andres Torres' head, and the game was delayed as Torres was injured on the play.

He was stranded on third as the Braves are currently losing 1-0 to the Mets as the NL East foes move to the bottom of the seventh.

Pastornicky, hitting eighth in Atlanta's Opening Day lineup, won the starting shortstop role over veteran Jack Wilson this spring. He was called up to the Braves roster on the final day of the 2011 regular season, but did not play.
